Our “Library” of Mangrove Resources is at your disposal.

For an excellent source of general mangrove knowledge and resources, please also visit or

MAP was originally founded on the idea of raising awareness of the importance of mangrove forests, and we aim to continue this tradition, making mangrove resources as up to date as possible so people can continue learning about these vital ecosystems.

Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment and Adaptation Planning for Mangrove Systems, published by WWF-US in April 2012. Drawing on pilot activities in Cameroon, Tanzania, and Fiji under the GEF-funded “Coastal Resilience to Climate Change” project, WWF has developed a methodology that can be used worldwide for assessing the vulnerability of mangrove ecosystems to the impacts of climate change (particularly sea level rise) and for developing adaptation strategies. This manual brings together a wealth of on-the-ground experience and scientific knowledge to help conservation practitioners, protected area managers and other stakeholders who are responsible for protecting and managing the world’s mangrove forests in a changing climate.
