Advancing Mangrove Knowledge


The International Day for the Conservation of Mangrove Ecosystems, adopted by UNESCO in 2015, is an important commemorative day, not only to recognize the incredible benefits that mangroves provide wildlife and humanity, but also to learn about the coastal trees and better understand their full value.

The Global Mangrove Alliance is proud to be connecting knowledge and supporting tools required to integrate mangroves and their ecosystem services into mitigation, adaptation, disaster risk reduction and land-use strategies with community and national leaders.

A variety of tools and resources are available in our Knowledge Hub and are added to regularly. This mangrove day, take a look through the Global Mangrove Watch evidence base, read about The State of the World’s Mangroves–globally and in the Western Indian Ocean Region–or look through a variety of principles and manuals for restoration and management success.

The latest updates from our Alliance are below and you can stay connected with news on TwitterFacebook, and LinkedIn to learn about additional projects, international events, and more. If you are part of an organization that is interested in joining the Alliance and getting advanced knowledge and access to data tools, you can find all the information you need here.

Happy International Day for the Conservation of Mangrove Ecosystems!
