Governance and Legal Protections for Mangroves

Help us understand their effectiveness by filling out our survey!

The Global Mangrove Alliance is looking for your input regarding existing governance and legal protections for mangroves to inform global conservation.

The goal of this survey is to learn about national efforts to protect mangroves and to identify how different national governance contexts and legal frameworks affect mangrove conservation outcomes.

Your input is critical to understand these issues, and help make mangrove conservation more effective. This survey should take about 20-40 minutes to complete. Even if you do not consider yourself an expert in mangrove legal systems, we encourage you to complete the survey to the best of your knowledge. This round of the survey will run until September 14th, 2022.

If you know of any colleagues who would be well positioned to complete this survey, we encourage you to share the survey with them or let us know and we can reach out to them. We hope to have at least 3 surveys completed per country for as many mangrove containing countries as possible.

This survey is part of a larger project on “Mangrove Science for Action – How Threats and National Governance Shape Mangrove Conservation Outcomes” and is being conducted by an interdisciplinary working group of researchers involving many Global Mangrove Alliance science members, and led by World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Georgetown University, East Carolina University, and Griffith University. We hope that the results can help improve conservation programs to lead to better outcomes for mangroves.

If you have any questions or need for clarification, please feel free to contact Dr. Dominic Andradi-Brown, survey lead, or reach out to our research assistant Sy Baker.
