Mangrove ecosystems are threatened by climate change. We review the state of knowledge of mangrove vulnerability and responses to predicted climate change and consider adaptation options, of all the climate change outcomes, relative sea-level rise may be the greatest threat to mangroves. Rising Sea-level will have the greatest impact on mangroves experiencing net lowering in sediment elevation. The Indian Ocean Pichavaram mangroves have been demonstrated to be at high risk substantial reductions.

The enhanced conservation and restoration of mangroves and its associated sequestration of atmospheric carbon, contributes to mitigating global warming thereby benefiting the entire planet.
