Mangroves are one of the most valuable nature-based solutions in the fight against climate change.
Mangroves store up to four times the amount of carbon as other tropical forests, with the potential to remove as much as 735 million tonnes of CO2 per year.
They are one of the most valuable nature-based solutions in the fight against climate change.
Alongside being one of the best carbon scrubbers in the world, mangroves’ complex root systems also protect coastlines from erosion and extreme weather events.
However, globally, mangroves are being destroyed faster than they can grow (declining by 0.2 to 0.7% yearly).
Many organizations like Mapping Ocean Wealth, Mangrove Action Project, The Million Mangroves Project, and Global Mangrove Alliance are working to save these natural carbon sinks!
On Tuesday, the IPCC's Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) was released, representing the most comprehensive scientific evaluation of climate change.
In response to a changing climate, we must create technologies and infrastructure improvements that are designed to mitigate and/or withstand the effects.
