Mangrove Forests Protection

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).
