A total area of 4 hectares of mangroves has been replanted with a community impact of over 85,000 people, in the area of Anaiwasala in the Kalpitiya Divisional Secretariat and the Anaiwasala Grama Niladhari Division, as part of the company's commitment and support to community mobilization and lagoon restoration. This project was implemented by Green Movement Sri Lanka (GMSL) and as of recent is being monitored by the University of Ruhuna.
The selected Kalpitiya area along the Puttalam lagoon is one of the most extensive mangrove systems in Sri Lanka. Arinma Holdings provided the funding to implement the project and, by extension, played a pivotal role in rehabilitating the surrounding ecosystem of the Anaiwasala area. By supporting the local community, the initiative facilitated long-term opportunities for employment as well as educated the communities in carrying out activities that are environmentally friendly. It is envisioned that the second phase of this project will encompass a further 350 hectares of blue carbon ecosystem restoration island-wide.
A total of 3000 mangrove plants will be replanted in the area of Anaiwasala in the Kalpitiya divisional secretariat and the Anaiwasala grama niladhari area, as part of Arinma Holding’s commitment and support to “upscale livelihoods and biodiversity through community mobilisation and lagoon restoration in the Anaiwasala area in Kalpitiya” project implemented by Green Movement Sri Lanka (GMSL).
The selected Kalpitiya area along the Puttalam lagoon is one of the most extensive mangrove systems in Sri Lanka. Moreover, this area is also one of the most affected by human interventions caused through the exploitation of mangroves for commercial, industrial, and housing needs predominantly due to the lack of knowledge on the ecological role of mangroves amongst rural communities.
Arinma Holdings will provide funding to implement the project and, by extension, play a part in rehabilitating the ecosystem of this area. By supporting the local community, the initiative will facilitate long-term opportunities for employment as well as education of the communities on how to carry out activities in an environmentally sensitive manner. Furthermore, Arinma Holdings will monitor the progress of the project and support GMSL to build strong partnerships with the local community by creating awareness amongst selected schools, five identified youth groups, and 20 fishing groups in the Anaiwasala area.
