Mangrove restoration process requires a decrease in the level of disturbance from economic activities based on wood. This does not mean that efforts for restoration should focus on heavily extracting other commodities. Conversely, and considering the Ayeyarwady landscape, the development of responsible business models and the improvement in value chains represent a sustainable opportunity to fulfill the economic income from mangrove wood-based activities. This report analyzes two bio-based value chains, hard-shell mud crab and dried food products, and recommends improvements within the value chain as a support and complement for mangrove restoration and conservation efforts.
