WHAT IS ECOSYSTEM VALUATION ?

The concept of ecosystem valuation is based on a “social ecosystem” approach which is integrating mechanisms for the sustainable management of this ecosystem in order to secure its development and preserve its resources by creating shared value for local people, organizations involved and the environment.

 

It’s a way to raise awareness of an industry to the value of ecosystem services and therefore the importance of their preservation.

TOURISM

Destinations, beachfront resorts, and other diving clubs clearly depend on the state of marine ecosystems.

Our development programs enable the development of solutions to secure the sustainability of these ecosystems and thus the destination and its identity among tourists.

  • Managing attendance dive sites
  • Restoration of damaged reefs
  • Regeneration of the local reef ecosystem
  • Educational path submarines
  • Participatory conservation programs
  • Training programs for the restoration of coral reefs
  • Awareness programs

Sustainable fishing

Local communities are entirely dependent on fisheries resources. 90% of their protein intake comes from marine resources, they are also the first to be impacted by the decline of local marine ecosystems.

“Well managed” reef can produce between 5 and 15 tonnes of fish and seafood per square kilometer.

Our development programs are used to develop solutions to help them achieve sustainable management of the ecosystems they depend so strongly:

  • Attendance management of fishermens
  • Protection and management of fallow areas
  • Restoration of damaged reefs
  • Regeneration of the local reef ecosystem
  • Management of fish stocks
  • Development of sustainable development model based on circular economy
  • Training programs for the restoration of coral reefs
  • Awareness programs

MARINE BIOTECHNOLOGIES

The reef organisms are used in the treatment of diseases such as certain cancers such as leukemia, HIV, cardiovascular disease, ulcers or bone grafts. Only a tiny fraction of reef organisms was sampled. Increasingly seek and find laboratory molecules of pharmacological interest in corals, sponges and other reef species.

Our development programs enable the development of solutions to secure the supply of these molecules responsible and sustainable way, by seamlessly combining marine conservation, sustainable development and economic security for the local community and laboratories.

  • Inventory management and sites coraliculture
  • Restoration of damaged reefs
  • Regeneration of the local reef ecosystem
  • Training programs to coraliculture
  • Creation of sustainable local employment
  • Crude extraction and export
  • Recycling of raw materials

AQUARIUM TRADE

Public and private aquariums, live marine animals retailers and wholesalers, also depends on the sustainability of the ecological balance of marine ecosystems to insure the longevity of their passion and / or activity.

Our development programs are used to develop solutions to help them achieve a responsible approach of integrating mechanisms for reduction and compensation of socio-environmental impacts into their business in order to preserve the resources on which it depends, creating shared value for local people, the actors involved and the environment:

  • Inventory management and sites coraliculture
  • Restoration of damaged reefs
  • Regeneration of the local reef ecosystem
  • Local training programs to coraliculture
  • Creation of sustainable local employment
  • Organization of the sector export in a responsible and sustainable
