Help Marvellous Mangroves continue Sustainable Learning
Today Wetlands International and The Nature Conservancy launches a new guidebook on the role of mangroves for coastal defence. Since the 2004 Asian Tsunami almost 10 years ago, we have come a long way and have found that mangroves can reduce risk from a large number of coastal hazards. In this new publication titled “Mangroves for coastal defence: Guidelines for coastal managers & policy makers” we provide practical guidance on the role that mangroves play in defence against waves, storms, tsunamis, erosion and sea level rise. Working with the University of Cambridge to review hundreds of scientific papers, the guide book translates in-depth knowledge into a practical approach for coastal decision makers.
Attached, please find the full press release. We hope that this will help you to mark the 10 years of the tsunami and also hope that you will circulate this among your colleagues and networks.
Thank you for your time and if you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
With kind regards,
Public Relations Officer and Web Editor
