This report explains what is known about coastal ecosystems in the Indonesian province of Aceh, their status before the tsunami of 2004, and how they fared after it. It reviews the ecosystem restoration activities that were undertaken in 2005-2006 by a variety of stakeholders and updates findings into 2007. Specifically, it examines the various means by which the re-planting of mangroves and other coastal vegetation was attempted, and quantifies the outcome in terms of success as measured by long-term seedling survival.
