About

Low land forests and mangroves have become one of the most threatened habitats. Protection and restoration measures of this habitats are essential for securing entire cost lines and help to prevent erosion and salinization of valuable adjacent farm land. The mapping of such cost habitats enables a systematic planning for protection measures and also gives stakeholders a detailed project insight.
