Year 2021 Global


As the world grapples with how to respond to the worsening climate crisis, many have turned to mangroves as a solution to help curb the amount of carbon in the atmosphere and protect coastal communities from more frequent and severe storms, while protecting biodiversity and ecosystem services. However, climate change itself presents a significant threat to the world’s mangroves. Using a keyword search, we identified 92 Climate Crowd interviews from eight countries that mention mangroves, and conducted analyses to learn how mangrove ecosystems are affected both directly and indirectly by climate change.
