Mangrove Forests Extent in Protected Areas

Mangrove Forests Extent in Protected Areas

This dataset shows the Mangrove Forests Protection for the year 2016 and the country mangrove extent  for years 1996 and 2016. The dataset is a subset of the global mangrove extent dataset generated by the Global Mangrove Watch (GMW) – a collaboration between Aberystwyth University (U.K.), solo Earth Observation (soloEO), Wetlands International, the World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).
