Goals & Objectives

In 2022, the GMA revised its Goal, an ambitious plan for turning the tables on the world’s mangroves. The plan contains three critical strands to be achieved by 2030:

Halt loss. Restore half. Double protection.

Achieving these goals will generate considerable  benefits for people across the planet, while new and ongoing studies by GMA partners and researchers are allowing us to constantly improve our ability to  assess these. Our Goals are available to read in eight languages, here.


There are many ways to bring mangrove conservation to scale. The Global Mangrove Alliance will use its collective strengths and partnerships to address the barriers to large-scale mangrove conservation and restoration through several streams of work, including:
Alternate Livelihoods
Improving Policy
Building Capacity
Knowledge Sharing
