Grupo de Conservación y Desarrollo del Manglar de Pred Nai

This community-based organization was Founded in the mid-1980s to reverse the effects of destructive mangrove harvesting near the coastal village of Pred Nai. A parallel goal was the recovery of local crab populations, which are an important source of income for poorer members of the community. After developing a strong track-record of successful forest management and ecosystem restoration, the group became a model and point of reference for sweeping policy reforms that transferred forest management authority to communities.

Since 2003, Pred Nai has developed a network that includes a number of other local villages, becoming formalized as the Community Coastal Resource Management Network, Trat Province. Through exchanging knowledge and sharing experiences with community forestry, these villages have learned from each other's successes and failures; the network has served as the basis for a climate change adaptation programme for coastal communities.
