Community-Based Ecological Mangrove Rehabilitation in Indonesia, a Case Study (alumni webinar)


Indonesia is home to the world's largest mangrove forest but has also suffered the highest level of mangrove deforestation in the world, losing about 2% of mangrove forests every year. Rehabilitating mangroves is an opportunity to reverse this trend, but efforts so far have often been unsuccessful. Ecological mangrove rehabilitation, which relies on fixing the hydrological processes and allowing the forests to regrow through natural regeneration, has emerged as a successful alternative.

This webinar will highlight a case study of community-based ecological mangrove rehabilitation in Indonesia. This online event is being offered to alumni of the ELTI Indonesian-language online course “Strategic Tropical Forest Restoration.”
