Governments should find solutions to keep sea level rise below that threshold “to mitigate climate change and to protect millions of people who depend on mangroves … At the mid to upper end of these scenarios, sea level rise could have devastating Their in-tertidal environment is physically and Human impacts on mangroves, including climate change, have received much attention of late mainly because mangrove deforestation is occurring at a rate of 1–2 % per year, which implies that most forests will disappear within]. Global mean sea level is projected to rise 9 to 88 cm between 1990 and 2100. is a platform for academics to share research papers. In consideration climate change alone, mangroves in most areas will display a positive response. 26 Climate change and sea level rise impacts on mangrove ecosystems Joanna Ellison, University of Tasmania, Australia Mangrove forests are tropical intertidal habitats and are extensively developed on increase the climate change resilience of Pacific Islanders as well as improve their livelihoods through selected capacity support in adaptive co-management and restoration of mangroves and associated ecosystems in five countries: Fiji, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Vanuatu.
