Mangroves for Coastal Resilience
Wetlands International champions and enables the adequate management, restoration and sustainable use of mangrove forests. In this brochure we highlight our approaches and activities to increase coastal resilience and reduce disaster risk.
Wetlands International has restored thousands of hectares of mangrove areas, particularly in India near Chennai, in Indonesia (Sumatra and Java), Guinea Bissau and Sierra Leone. Our approach is to bring together science, policy and practice and to connect local, regional and global solutions.
