During FY2014, SWAMP expanded fieldwork, modeling and mapping, capacity-building and outreach. Through both core SWAMP and leveraged SWAMP activities, USFS, CIFOR and OSU were engaged in wetlands & climate change activities in more than fourteen countries in Latin America & Caribbean, Africa, and Asia-Pacific regions.
Carbon-rich tropical wetland ecosystems including mangroves and peatlands are considered as high priorities in climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies throughout the world. This is for at least 4 reasons: (1) they have exceptionally high carbon stocks – among the highest of any ecosystem on earth; (2) their rates of land cover change/deforestation are the highest in the tropics; (3) their emissions from land cover change far exceed emissions from land conversion of upland forests; and (4) wetlands provide a number of ecosystem services that are vital to the sustainability of local communities, livelihoods, and infrastructure.
This Final Report covers the entire activities during the 2011/2012 fiscal year. At the same time it includes activities for the fourth quarter (1 July-30 September 2012). Five groups of activities listed below are described with their deliverables as expected in the objectives of the project.
