CSRD is awarded the 2021 RISK Award with “Strong Roots, Strong Women” Project

We are delighted to be award the 2021 RISK Award* of the Munich Re Foundation as a project called Strong Roots, Strong Women that aims to empower women for community and coastal ecosystem resilience jointly with key stakeholders. With the cooperation with UP Transfer GmbH at the University of Potsdam, Germany, we expect for establishing a community-run mangrove nursery at Southeast Asia’s largest lagoon, which is linked to an innovative micro-credit fund supporting women. Mangroves can help not only to reduce flood risks and coastal erosion but also to generate multiple social, ecological, and economic co-benefits that support those directly depending on local natural resources.

We would like to thank all who supported us to attain its overwhelming success on this award.

*RISK Award has been set up by Munich Re Foundation in collaboration with the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) to help improve risk reduction and disaster management.
