Pour que la recherche ait un impact, la science a besoin de canaux de communication clairs pour aller droit au but. Le CIFOR-ICRAF est aussi passionné par le partage de ses connaissances que par leur production.
Para que la investigación pueda generar algún impacto, los conocimientos científicos requieren de canales de comunicación claros. En CIFOR-ICRAF, compartir nuestros conocimientos nos apasiona tanto como generarlos.
Ilmu pengetahuan membutuhkan saluran komunikasi yang jelas untuk mencapai tujuan, jika ingin dampaknya terlihat. CIFOR-ICRAF sangat bersemangat untuk berbagi pengetahuan sembari menghasilkan pengetahuan itu sendiri.
CIFOR–ICRAF achieves science-driven impact. We conduct innovative research, strengthen
partners’ capacity and actively engage in dialogue with all stakeholders, bringing the latest insights on
forests, trees, landscapes and people to global decision making.
CIFOR–ICRAF addresses local challenges and opportunities while providing solutions to global problems for forests,
landscapes, people and the planet.
We deliver actionable evidence and solutions to transform how land is used and how food is produced: conserving and
restoring ecosystems, responding to the global climate, malnutrition, biodiversity and desertification crises. In short,
improving people’s lives.
Conservation and restoration of coastal ecosystems, including tidal salt marshes, seagrass meadows and mangrove forests (collectively called blue carbon (BC) ecosystems), offer excellent opportunities around nature-based solutions for climate mitigation and adaptation. The purpose of this three-day workshop is to serve as a knowledge exchange platform where advances and trends in mangrove research within Indian subcontinent will be discussed and information gaps will be identified. This webinar will allow interactions between mangrove researchers and help forge new partnerships and research collaborations among individuals and institutions for advancing mangrove scientific research in India.
The significance of mangroves in maintaining coastal biodiversity, livelihoods, and mitigating climate change is widely recognized. The amplified awareness about the mangroves in India can be evidenced from the sharp increase in the number of peer-reviewed research publications over the past decade, especially on ecosystem services, carbon sequestration, and threats to mangroves. The growing interest in mangroves also provides an opportunity to address knowledge gaps through state of art techniques and multi-institutional collaborations, which will advance the understanding and management of Indian mangroves.
Goal and objectives
The goal of this online workshop is to bring together active mangrove researchers from academic and research institutions, government agencies and state entities to showcase the latest research findings from mangrove ecosystems within India. The discussions and deliberations will help in knowledge exchange and identifying future research directions. It will also help in identifying research priorities and possible approaches to address existing issues vis a vis mangrove conservation and management in the country.
A three-day virtual workshop (combined duration ~ 9 hours) is planned during 8 – 10 Dec, 2021 to allow exchange of knowledge among participants, facilitators and resource persons. This three-day event will focus on one thematic area each day. There will be one keynote speaker, two research talks and a panel discussion.
Day 1. Mangroves as nature-based solutions to climate change: Carbon sequestration, biophysical attributes and climate mitigation.
Day 2. Mangroves for coastal resilience and biodiversity conservation: Climate adaptation, safeguarding coastal ecology and human well-being.
Day 3. Recent advances in mangrove research and future perspectives: Regional and Indian mangrove research and opportunities to address existing gaps.
Early and mid-career researchers with active research focussed on India will be encouraged to share their new findings and its impacts. Seasoned academicians, conservationists and policy makers will be invited to share their experiences in a panel discussion.
CIFOR-ICRAF is the world’s leader on harnessing the power of trees, forests and agroforestry landscapes to address the most pressing global challenges of our time - biodiversity loss, climate change, food security, livelihoods and inequity. The Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and World Agroforestry (ICRAF) merged in 2019. CIFOR and ICRAF are CGIAR Research Centers.
