1st Future Mangrove Day hosted by the ZMT in Berlin

Report of Ms. Micheala Aschbacher, Programme Manager


On 26 June 2019, the Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT) hosted the first Future Mangrove Day in Berlin. The event was an opportunity was to bring together representatives of politics, business, science and civil society to exchange their experiences in the protection of mangrove forests and tropical coasts.
Participants first discussed in working groups on pollution, food security, global climate overlaps and differences in problems associated with external influences on this valuable ecosystem. On this basis, they were asked to formulate possible solutions and options for action for the protection of mangroves.


The Global Nature Fund welcomed the event as an opportunity to share experiences and ideas on community-based mangrove conservation, sustainable use of ecosystem services and support of fragile coastal populations. With its global expertise in the field of mangrove research, capacity development and consulting, the ZMT is an important partner for project activities of the Global Nature Fund.
