Guidelines on Mangrove Ecosystem Restoration for the Western Indian Ocean Region

The Guidelines provide information to help ensure successful mangrove restoration projects within the WIO region. The guidelines provide step-by-step procedures to restore mangroves on areas impacted by both human and natural stressors. The objectives are to:

  1. Highlight status and conditions of man- grove forests around the world, their goods and services, threats facing them, and the need to restore degraded mangroves for present and future generations;
  2. Serve as documentation of previous mangrove restoration activities and lessons learnt from across the WIO region;
  3. Outline best practices from previous mangrove restoration activities across the region thus allowing for objective site- specific assessment of restoration path- ways and enhanced successes; and
  4. Help users in the region to focus on what is most likely to work for them, to assist them to better match the array of available tools to their particular situation.
