PN 2020-08: Mitigating Climate Change through Mangrove Forest

This Policy Note emphasizes the role of mangroves in sequestering significant amount of CO2 by harnessing their potential as CO2 capture and storage (CCS). It zeroed in on the Bued Mangrove Forest Park in Pangasinan and assessed the diversity of its mangroves, sediment carbon, mangrove distribution and carbon stock, and vegetation index. Its analysis revealed that this forest has a potential as CCS, which can lead to notable strategies for climate change mitigation and provide adaptation measurements. To sustain this benefit, it calls for the adoption of policies and regulations that can mitigate the impact of human actions on the forest. It also urged the government to establish a sustainable funding and concrete incentive systems to balance the conservation of mangrove ecosystem and sustainable livelihood for coastal inhabitants and regulations for tourism.
