Seaweed farming for carrageenan plays a central role in supporting the livelihoods of local family farmers in South East Asia and East Africa. Climate change and variable market conditions pose significant challenges for these communities, straining to adapt with limited means. Such complexities could result in farming practices that might lead to unforeseen effects on the sustainability of seaweed resources.
Our approach seeks to strengthen and empower seaweed producers and their communities, working closely with them and leveraging our organizational capabilities and resources to create long-lasting positive impacts. Whether through training, tools, coaching or assistance we focus on best practices that foster the preservation of marine and coastal ecosystems, as well as safer, more equal and improved socio-economic work environments.
