This included reforesting over 10 hectares of coastal land with mangrove and filao trees to help tackle erosion; sinking 410 artificial reefs in the Marine Protected Area; and providing two biogas facilities as an alternative source of fuel for Sediment Trapping Units installed along the coast of Suriname promote sediment deposition and createwomen fish processors. Between conditions for halting and reversing erosion, including by creating a habitat for new mangrove juveniles. them the reforestation and biogas elements of this project Several of our social investmentto reliable power improvedare estimated to sequester projects are focused on supportingquality of life by improvingaround 130 tons of CO2 per year local communities with sustainablehealth and indoor air quality;according to our implementing energy access and adaptationincreasing connectivity throughpartner NGO, Le Partenariat.to environmental change. Formobile device charging and example: In Suriname, Kosmos partnered with Conservation International and Anton de Kom University to build Sediment Trapping Units (STUs) to help reverse coastal erosion in the Weg naar See coastal area. The structures promote sediment deposition and create conditions for halting and reversing erosion, including by creating a habitat for new mangrove juveniles. The next step is to quantify and document the effectiveness of the STUs and potentially extend the project to other coastal areas of Suriname.In Mauritania, Kosmos and BPbuilt solar-power installations that deliver a sustainable source of electricity to over 2,000 people in the rural region of Ndiago who were not connected to the grid. This new access Solar power installations in Mauritania have helped bring reliable and sustainable electricity to communities near Ndiago.17'
