The mangrove environment is one of the world's most productive and ecologically significant ecosystems. Since they can store carbon up to 400% faster than tropical land-based rainforests, they offer considerable benefits for both reducing climate change and preparing for it. They shield coastal areas from erosion, storm surges, and rising sea levels. They act as a habitat for marine biodiversity. The survival of almost 80% of the world's fish population depends on these environments.
