International Regeneration Studio Reconstructing Chamanga – Student Experiences


Sarah Schoffel 

There is a delicate balance to be maintained between traditional artisanal fishing practiced by a large part of the population of Chamanga, prawn farming and the estuarine mangroves. The mangroves are crucial as they provide nurseries for fish. These photos are in the area where the new fishing port facility is planned.

The current housing is in the high risk zone for flooding and liquefaction. Families there will be rehoused.
