Mangrove Forests are Nature Based Solution to Coastal Erosion

Coastal Mangrove Forests are nature´s defense against erosion, rising oceans, and storms. Grey infrastructure like break walls are temporary solutions that force eroding waves to other areas but do not stop their destructive effects. Mangrove forests can reduce wave height by 2/3, sustain biodiversity in the ecosystem, and act as a carbon sink by absorbing undesired emissions.
