Coastal wetlands – like seagrasses, mangroves, marshes, and swamps – have multiple environmental benefits. As well as defending against rising waters and harsh weather caused by climate change and promoting biodiversity, they are seen as one of the most effective solutions in fighting against global warming.
Seychelles is extremely vulnerable to the effects of climate change, but around those islands, there is enough seagrass to fill hundreds of thousands of football pitches. The government has committed to protecting half its seagrasses and mangroves by 2023 and 100% by 2030.
