Brief description of the livelihood:

In 2016, CASEMPCO entered a conservation agreement with CI Philippines entitled “Mangrove/Beach Forest Rehabilitation Project”. CASEMPCO produced ~300,000 Sonneratia and Avicennia mangrove seedlings for planting. This resulted to a 6.8-hectare plantation area, including a greenbelt of mangroves that could buffer the barangay from typhoon damage. The seedlings produced by CASEMPCO in a temporary nursery are perhaps among the highest in Oriental Mindoro, indicating their skillfulness in mangrove propagation. Thus, with its decades long experience in managing agro-enterprises, conservation projects, and its deep roots in the community.
