This study systematically reviews the impact of land use change to carbon losses from published studies in coastal mangroves throughout the world. This systematic review will provide a comprehensive scientific evidence for policy makers in line with current recognition of mangrove as high C reservoir coastal wetland ecosystem. This project is funded (35,000USD) by DFID-KnowFor through CIFOR Evidence-based Forestry Initiative.
