Millions of people depend on mangroves. They provide food, wood for construction and fires, and economic revenue from fishing and tourism. One estimate is that they contribute USD33,000–57,000 per hectare per year to the national economies of underdeveloped countries where they are present, through the commodities and services they offer.

In our new CIO Nature Series publication, we focus on mangroves, a lesser known kind of tree. Mangroves are tropical trees that can survive in environments where most types of plants cannot. They are highly important for biodiversity and play a crucial role as nature-based solutions to mitigate the effects of climate change, even though they make up less than 1% of all tropical forests worldwide.


We recommend this publication to readers interested in learning more about what mangroves are, how they contribute to mitigating climate change, what threatens them and how we can save them.
