The Mangroves Project by the Institute of Science and Environment was presented at the international online Workshop on “Fostering Applied Research on the Synergies between Biodiversity and Climate” held on June 8 – 9, 2022, by the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BFN).



The Mangroves Project by the Institute of Science and Environment (ISE) of the University of Saint Joseph (USJ) was one of the few invited presentations at the international online Workshop on “Fostering Applied Research on the Synergies between Biodiversity and Climate” held on June 8 – 9, 2022, by the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BFN).

Prof. Karen Tagulao from the ISE/USJ gave a presentation focused on how the research outputs – mangroves for phytoremediation of coastal water pollution, and their important role in climate change adaptation and mitigation – are being translated into action through community and school-based outreach programs. The workshop was participated by around 30 experts from the  international scientific community with the common goal of addressing biodiversity and climate crises.
