Summary
Mangroves support globally significant marine biodiversity, help mitigate climate change by sequestering carbon dioxide, and support the traditional livelihoods and fisheries of some of the world's most vulnerable coastal communities. After the oceans, soils are the second-largest carbon sink. They hold more carbon than the world’s forests and the atmosphere combined. Sustainable land management has huge potential to contribute to climate protection, adaptation as well as food security.
