Challenges to responsible scaling of mangrove protection and restoration
With coastal communities already facing the impacts of a changing climate, we urgently need to invest in conserving and restoring mangroves now as nature-based solutions to adapt to this changing planet. This includes setting a global target that aligns ambition, provides a systemic vision, and attracts public and private capital at the scale needed to turn the tide in mangrove conservation. Scaling is key but navigating the complexities of reaching scale in a responsible and science-based manor has hinders our ability. Much more capital and collaboration is needed to turn commitments into actions. Dr. Howard will speak to this challenge and the opportunities for radical collaboration.
