This regional workshop will share new science, examples, and lessons learned from the implementation of mangrove restoration in the Caribbean, with a view to highlighting post-disaster restoration initiatives in the wake of Hurricanes Maria and Irma. The workshop objectives include: (1) sharing new scientific developments, in both ecosystem assessment and in mangrove management and restoration practices, including nursery and planting techniques, specific to Caribbean island contexts; (2) highlighting lessons learned and results of the collaborative restoration work in the British Virgin Islands; and (3) accelerating the uptake, resourcing and implementation of Caribbean mangrove restoration, harnessing the best of science and nature.
