Mangrove Restoration Guidelines
Wetlands International aim to increase the success of mangrove restoration, by providing a set of guidance materials that is endorsed by the world’s leading scientists and practitioners. Unfortunately, research has shown that till date, 80% of all mangrove restoration initiatives fail, as practitioners often focus their effort on mass tree planting, rather than implementing a broader set of interventions that put in place socio-economic and biophysical enabling conditions for mangrove recovery. Also, many mangrove restoration projects remain too small in scale and as a result fail to yield meaningful results across wider landscapes. If practitioners have access to a ‘one stop shop’ pointing the way to the best guidance for any given restoration objective, context, or region, that is endorsed by the world’s leading scientists and NGOs — then they can overcome the real barriers to mangrove restoration and thus, achieving a restoration of truly resilient mangrove forests with tangible climate and biodiversity impacts.
