A long-term plan for the sustainable use of mangrove ecosystems is urgently needed. Monitoring, research and evaluation are vital components of a successful conservation strategy for mangrove forests. The expert papers contained in this publication outline the key areas for future focus in the stewardship of this vital ecosystem. They address key topics such as appropriate legislation; community participation and empowerment; management agreements between communities; governments and NGOs; and local responsibility for supervision and enforcement of rules and regulations. A plan of action for the worldwide conservation and use of mangroves is also included.
