As world leaders face converging crises of biodiversity loss and climate change, a compilation of the most current information available on what is known about mangrove forests is released, with a look at what’s being done to reverse the downward trends impacting the forests and the local communities who depend on them.
The report is compiled by THE GLOBAL MANGROVE ALLIANCE:
In 2018, Conservation International (CI), the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), The Nature Conservancy (TNC), Wetlands International, and World Wildlife Fund (WWF) formed the Global Mangrove Alliance (GMA). Today, over 25 member organizations share the twin goals of restoring and recovering 50% of recent mangrove loss and doubling the area of mangroves under effective and equitable protection and management.
The report is of great importance to everyone – not only with regards to the mangroves but out of concern for the greater environmental issues facing us all globally.
