Problem

1. Waste and debris.

2. Coral damage by army settelment.

3. Beach erosion.

4. Soil restoration to grow food.

Solution

1. Sustainable waste management such as food, solid and excrement according permaculture principles.

2. The island was occupied by the army and the training activities degraded the ecosystem hence causing direct impact to the fishermen till date.

3. The illegal sand mining activity leading to disappearance of partial part of the beach.

4. Permaculture principles taught how to apply sustainable life. So we have to grow our own food, manage our wastes and fully utilize the natural energy that we can gain from nature.
