Where Land Meets the Sea: A Global Review of the Governance and Tenure Dimensions of Coastal Mangrove Forests – Report Brief

This 8-page brief summarizes key findings from the report Where Land Meets The Sea: A Global Review of the Governance and Tenure Dimensions of Coastal Mangrove Forests. Specifically, the brief assesses how effectively the diversity of legal and policy frameworks as well as institutional structures– formal and informal–enable mangrove governance across different settings. The brief also examines the institutions and patterns of local management and use, including tenure rights and gender differentiation and how these local institutions might influence mangrove management and rehabilitation efforts. It is part of a larger study funded by the USAID Tenure and Global Climate Change Program that includes national-level assessments in Indonesia and Tanzania.Provided in the brief is information on 1) transforming drivers of mangrove deforestation and degradation, 2) the legal and policy frameworks for the governance of mangroves, 3) mangrove governance and tenure in practice, and 4) gender-differentiated approaches in mangrove governance.
