Exploring the science behind remote sensing. This World Mangrove Day, the Global Mangrove Alliance and partners are launching the Global Mangrove Watch. The Global Mangrove Watch is the world’s most comprehensive mangrove monitoring tool: an online platform that provides synthesized remote sensing data and tools, built to catalyse the action needed to protect and restore mangroves worldwide. It gives universal access to real-time data on where and what changes there are to mangroves around the world, and highlights why they are valuable in multiple contexts.
At the launch event, the scientists behind its creation will give a live demonstration and walk-through of the tool, as well as sharing stories of how the Global Mangrove Watch is being applied in the field and in policy-making arenas, and how collaborators and the Global Mangrove Alliance will apply it to catalyse action in the future.
