ECCDI established new forest plantations, rehabilitated degraded natural forests and created Community Forests (CFs) in order to expand forest cover, and improve the environment. Rehabilitation of mangrove forests was especially needed in the Ayeyarwady Delta after the Cyclone Nargis hit the region on May 2, 2008. ECCDI had implemented four projects to improve mangroves there.
