Ecosystem services


Policy and restoration

Sea level rise

We use novel tools to quantify mangrove ecosystem services: carbon, fisheries, wave attenuation, microclimate, cultural values
We lead measurements of sea level rise vulnerability in mangroves across Southeast Asia, and train others to extend the network
We use remote sensing to map local->regional land cover change. We highlight new deforestation drivers in Southeast Asia
We research the implementation of Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) and mangrove restoration
