Rivers of Life, Oceans of Plenty describes the unique marine and coastal ecosystems of the western Indian Ocean, documenting the ways in which they are changing. It shows how over-fishing, the destruction of critical habitats such as coastal forests, mangrove forests, seagrass beds and coral reefs and global climate change are leading to a decline in the abundance of resources. The film also highlights the actions that are being taking by African countries to reverse the degradation of their marine and coastal ecosystems and secure their future social and economic well-being. An educational film produced jointly by two Global Environment Facility projects, UNDP implemented Agulhas Somali Current Large Marine Ecosystem and the UNEP-implemented Western Indian Ocean Land-based Activities project. www.asclme.org/www.wiolab.org
