Title: Mangrove Management

Publisher: LAP Lambert Academic Publishing

Binding: Paperback

Book Condition: New

Book Type: Paperback

Description:

Paperback. 104 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.2in.Mangrove ecosystem services have great value, especially to poor coastal communities. Rates of mangrove deforestation are among the highest of any ecosystem and the resulting loss of ecosystem services falls greatest on the poor. Consequently there is a need for conservation and restoration projects to maintain ecosystems service flows. This will require the both national conservation and restoration programmes and the participation of local communities to change local resource use patterns. A framework is developed to determine risk to mangrove ecosystems and used to analyse opportunities for mangrove forest carbon projects in Kenya. Analysis indicates that a third of carbon stored in Kenyan mangroves is at risk of emission. This has the potential to generate over US1 million for conservation programmes and improving livelihoods of coastal poor communities. GIS modelling allows threats to mangroves to be analysed and aids location of successful projects or interventions. This tool can be developed accessibly to provide valuable input into coastal management plans, government climate change mitigation policy and community-based sustainable natural resource management. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9783848409440

About this title:

Synopsis: Mangrove ecosystem services have great value, especially to poor coastal communities. Rates of mangrove deforestation are among the highest of any ecosystem and the resulting loss of ecosystem services falls greatest on the poor. Consequently there is a need for conservation and restoration projects to maintain ecosystems service flows. This will require the both national conservation and restoration programmes and the participation of local communities to change local resource use patterns. A framework is developed to determine risk to mangrove ecosystems and used to analyse opportunities for mangrove forest carbon projects in Kenya. Analysis indicates that a third of carbon stored in Kenyan mangroves is at risk of emission. This has the potential to generate over US$1 million for conservation programmes and improving livelihoods of coastal poor communities. GIS modelling allows threats to mangroves to be analysed and aids location of successful projects or interventions. This tool can be developed accessibly to provide valuable input into coastal management plans, government climate change mitigation policy and community-based sustainable natural resource management.

About the Author: Charlie completed an MSc at the University of Edinburgh in Ecological Economics, specialising in forest carbon and payments for ecosystem services. Originally trained as a physicist, he has worked for the World Agroforestry Centre in Indonesia. His interests include a landscape approach to ecosystems service provision and land management.
