Climate change is significantly impacting and will continue to impact all nations of the world. With emerging technologies and tools now being made available, more in-depth analysis on the value of nature is increasingly supporting decision-making. One of the most important tools now readily available is carbon assessment, which has been delivering solid evidence on the extent of value of wetlands particularly in their carbon storage capacity. Of particular interest, for example, is a study by UNFCCC, which revealed that mangrove carbon sequestration in 17 countries offsets more than 5% of national greenhouse gas emissions.
