Climate change is the problem, nature - the solution

Four years after the deadly Indian Ocean tsunami devastated the Asian coast, the need to restore, protect and invest in coastal ecosytems is clear. The difficult task to bring together different agencies, sectors and countries who are addressing today's challenges related to climate change and overpopulation, is now the responsibility of the unique multi-partner initiative called Mangroves for the Future (MFF) and led by IUCN and UNDP.
