RISING FROM THE DEPTHS

UTILISING MARINE CULTURAL HERITAGE IN EAST AFRICA
TO HELP DEVELOP SUSTAINABLE SOCIAL, ECONOMIC AND CULTURAL BENEFITS

The Rising from the Depths network is funded for four years, 2017-21, by the UK Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) through the Arts and Humanities Research Council Network Plus scheme. We have funded a selection of Innovation Projects across Kenyan, Tanzania, Madagascar and Mozambique that aim to utilise Marine Cultural Heritage (MCH) to deliver sustainable development.

Our aim is to identify how the tangible submerged and coastal MCH of the region, and its associated intangible aspects, can stimulate ethical, inclusive and sustainable economic growth in the region. Through our funded projects, we hope to build social cohesion and reduce poverty in individual states, but also in enhance the value and impact of overseas aid in the maritime sector.

Mida Creek is an Important Bird Area, with some of the most endemic and endangered species. The many mangrove channels offers one the exciting chance to explore the biodiversity. Here an Osprey on a mangrove tree scans the sea for fish @GCRF @ahrcpress @rftdnetwork @UlsterUniGES

This song by @chemical_tz is amazing, and I hope that one day we can have a similar one for our National Maritime Heritage... perfect start for the @UNOceanDecade
