Abstract

Mangroves are valued by people of the Pacific islands (Figure 1) as important for coastal protection, from waves and during storms, particularly the destructive winds and storm surge associated with cyclones. These values are recognised with high confidence by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (Hoegh-Guldberg et al., 2018). Mangroves also provide fish and crabs for food, and wood for building construction and fuel. Fish is the primary food source for Pacific islands people (Charlton et al., 2016), with reliable fish supplies essential to regional food security. This paper updates understanding of status of mangroves in the Pacific islands, and future risks particularly from climate change.
