United Nations Environment Programme (2023). Decades of Mangrove Forest Change: What does it mean for nature, people and the climate? UNEP, Nairobi

Using maps released in 2022 by the Global Mangrove Watch, this report contains the results from a series of novel analyses which describe global, regional and national estimates of mangrove change. For the first time, the report explores the impact of mangrove loss on biodiversity, small-scale fishers and climate change. In doing so, it demonstrates what we stand to lose from the continuing destruction of mangrove forests and the benefits we can receive from effective, evidence-based conservation and restoration.
