Dear all,

This problem is not so easy to solve in the reality because mangroves value in term of timber is small by the view of policy makers. To mitigate the negative impacts of the planned tourist project, we should:

1. have strong evidence on economic value of mangroves and seagrass and especially benefits of mangroves and seagrass systems to local people and community in the area to convince the decision makers;

2. show the role of mangroves ecosystem in protecting the coast against seawave and typhoons, etc. and that is the most significant values of mangroves;

3. consider whether there is impact caused by the project on the mangroves and seagrass in Cat Ba national park;

In case the project will have to be implemented, we should give comments to the relevant authorities to minimize the negative impacts.

Best regards
