Mangroves for coastal defence: guidelines for coastal managers and policy makers

Source(s):  Nature Conservancy, the
University of Cambridge
Wetlands International

This guide provides an in-depth analysis on the role that mangroves play in defense against waves, storms, tsunamis, erosion and sea level rise. It answers the following questions: Can mangroves reduce waves and storm surges? How will they influence the forces of a tsunami? Do they actually contribute to stabilizing coasts and build-up of soils? Can they keep up with sea level rise?

Working with the University of Cambridge to review hundreds of scientific papers, the guide book outlines a practical approach for coastal decision makers.
