UNEP-WCMC has participated in an unprecedented partnership of organisations – from forestry and conservation sectors and from across the United Nations - to contribute to a new and comprehensive global assessment of the state of the world’s mangroves. The full colour World Atlas on Mangroves illustrates the extraordinary synergies between people and mangrove forests and contains detailed maps, photos and illustrations, and comprehensive country-by-country assessments of mangroves. The World Atlas on Mangrove was launched on July 14th 2010. For more information please see the press release and World Atlas on Mangrove Flyer.
