Community based mangrove management and community forestry offer vital opportunities for adaptation to climate change for both coastal and inland communities. Mangrove forests play a critical role for coastal communities and marine ecosystems alike, protecting coastlines from storm surges, flooding and erosion. They also serve communities as fish nurseries and a source of timber. However mangrove ecosystems themselves are vulnerable to climate change, including temperature and precipitation changes, sea level rise and coastal flooding.
