Carbon stocks and fluxes associated with land use change in global coastal mangrove forests—a systematic review

Carbon stocks and fluxes associated with land use change in global coastal mangrove forests—a systematic review

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
