Recognizing the importance of conserving mangrove forest ecosystems worldwide, the World Bank has commissioned a desk review with the title: “Mainstreaming Conservation of Coastal Biodiversity through Formulation of a generic Code of Conduct for Sustainable Management of Mangrove Forest Ecosystems”. This report is intended to serve as a resource document to facilitate the development of a Code of Conduct for the Sustainable Management of Mangrove Forest Ecosystems (here after referred to as “the Code of Conduct”). Formulation of the Code of Conduct will be based on existing knowledge, experience and concepts. The objective will be to arrest the recent and rapid destruction of the coastal mangrove ecosystems, to improve their management, and to conserve biodiversity in these critical natural habitats.
