Succesful introduction of Building with Nature in Suriname

Suriname is known as the greenest country on earth, but is also one of the seven globally most endangered countries by sea level rise. On May 17th 2016 a Building with Nature project in Suriname was kicked-off by Professor Sieuwnath Naipal, Conservation International Suriname and local donors to protect the coastline against the flooding from rising seawater and salinization of arable land. The approach is a replication from the Building with Nature programme in Central Java to bring a halt to coastal erosion.
