EcoFriend World is a global movement with a mission to plant one billion mangrove trees before 2030.
100 million mangrove trees have already been planted in collaboration with Worldview International Foundation, Worldview Impact Foundation, Worldview The Gambia and other partners in Myanmar, India, Togo, Benin and The Gambia
EcoFriend World offers sustainability consultancy services to individuals, businesses, public organisations with a mission to restore the balance on earth.
EcoFriend World has a team of international experts and global ambassadors with years of experience working with Governments, IGOs, NGOs and the Private Sector implementing projects in Asia, Africa and South America.
Our aim is producing ecologically sound and economically viable projects that contribute directly to reducing rural poverty, generating productive sustainable livelihoods and addressing climate change.
We are working to support the UN Paris Climate Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Of all the trees on our planet, mangroves capture 5 times more CO2 than any other rainforests, which are known to be “the green lungs of our planet”.
Mangroves play a vital role in the protection of lives and properties in vulnerable coastal communities from tsunamis, cyclones and other extreme weather.
Mangroves increase seafood production by up to 50%.
Mangroves filter and clean water in protection of coral reefs and seagrass.
Mangroves ecosystems are vital for the survival of many species on our planet including our own.
One mature mangrove tree produces enough oxygen for four people.
In spite of its vital role mangrove forests are disappearing three times faster that rainforests with a critical level being reached in many countries.
In September 2015, 193 countries adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – a roadmap to alleviate global poverty, advance social and economic development and importantly, further the integrated management of natural systems.
The importance of restoring and protecting mangroves is reflected most clearly in Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 14, which focuses on sustainably governing our oceans and coasts and recognises mangroves’ immense value to local communities. But restoring mangrove forests also supports the achievement of many other SDGs, including eliminating poverty and hunger (SDG 1 and SDG 2), ensuring livelihoods and economic growth (SDG 8), taking actions against climate change impacts (SDG 13) and halting biodiversity loss (SDG 15).
Goal 1
End poverty in all its forms everywhere
Goal 8
Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all
Goal 14
Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development
Goal 2
End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
Goal 13
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
Goal 15
Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss

Restoring lost mangrove forests is a practical, meaningful contribution in strengthening nature’s own methods for climate balance, tested over thousands of years. Planting miracle mangrove trees is more than a vision, it is a celebration for life on Earth. Believing in a livable future is more than a dream, it is a commitment to our global village.
