    Mangroves provide a wide array of benefits to coastal communities, including wood and non-wood forest products and a wide range of environmental services encompassing coastal hazard protection, erosion control, water filtration and bio-diversity conservation. Mangroves are also valuable in terms of climate change mitigation due to high rates of primary productivity and the large amounts of carbon contained within above- and below-ground biomass and mangrove soils. In spite of their many valu es, mangrove areas continue to diminish in size around Asia and sustainable financing for their protection has not been forthcoming.

    This publication guides the establishment of systems for allocating performance-based incentives to coastal communities in exchange for mangrove restoration and protection. It is aimed at potential financiers of mangrove restoration and protection including private entities, development organizations, government agencies and/or other proponents interested i n supporting long-term mangrove restoration and protection initiatives.

    This is the fourth in a series of four publications intended to be used in conjunction in establishing sustainable financing for mangrove protection in Asia. The titles and links of the four publications are as follows:

    The world’s mangroves 1980–2005 is a thematic study undertaken within the framework of the Global Forest Resources Assessment 2005. It was led by FAO in collaboration with mangrove specialists throughout the world, and was co-funded by the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO). It builds on the 1980 assessment, on the FAO Global Forest Resources Assessment 2000 (FRA 2000) and 2005 (FRA 2005), and on an extensive literature search and correspondence with mangrove and forest resources assessment specialists. The main aim of this study is to facilitate access to comprehensive and comparable information on the current and past extent of mangroves in the 124 countries and areas where they are known to exist, highlighting information gaps and providing updated information that may serve as a tool for mangrove managers and policy- and decision-makers worldwide.
