Final Report 2012 - 2013

Year: 2013

Carbon-rich tropical wetland ecosystems including mangroves and peatlands are considered as high priorities in climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies throughout the world. This is for at least 4 reasons: (1) they have exceptionally high carbon stocks – among the highest of any ecosystem on earth; (2) their rates of land cover change/deforestation are the highest in the tropics; (3) their emissions from land cover change far exceed emissions from land conversion of upland forests; and (4) wetlands provide a number of ecosystem services that are vital to the sustainability of local communities, livelihoods, and infrastructure.
