Marine and Coastline


Projects on Qeshm Island started since 2001 with the goal of biodiversity and International conservation (as the island is unique in this aspect).

However very quickly it was found out that to be able to sustain biodiversity it is mandatory to think about alternative livelihoods.

Communities were gradually involved in biodiversity and livelihood projects which created an important tool for mobilization and empowerment (esp. of women) on Qeshm island.
