Suriname’s coast has extensive low-lying areas, identified as highly vulnerable to climate-induced sea level rise in the future. The coast is also susceptible to flooding and erosion due to the loss of stabilisation provided by mangroves. This area has been losing up to 27 meters of land annually, causing displacement of local habitants with loss of livelihood. On 26th April 2019, SSIO volunteers including 8 Young Adults and others planted more than 500 mangroves at Weg Naar Zee in the northern coastal district of Paramaribo. The project was led by a professor who specialised in climate change and water resources. It was a wonderful and inspiring experience for the Sathya Sai Young Adults to contribute to protecting Mother Earth.
