The project seeks to promote a common methodology across the region to attain a regional understanding of the relationship of vulnerability to sea level rise and carbon sequestration with mangrove diversity. The research will provide data, knowledge and tools that can be used for enhancing the design of mangrove restoration programs to become more resilient with the impacts of projected sea level rise and to enhance carbon sequestration. Results of the study will be used in making landscape models (e.g. sea level affects marshes model) that will enable the development of links between science and policy.
