The mangrove trees that grow in the swamps and coastlines are very important as they are the first line of defence against the impacts of climate change, including rising sea levels and storm surge.

In recognition of this important role, the Ministry of Planning and Development is undertaking a mangrove replanting exercise on Sunday.

Deputy Director of the Institute of Marine Affairs, Dr. Rahanna Juman, explained where the exercise will be on Sunday and why.

Dr. Juman added that this country has lost 50% of the mangroves over the years due to human activity.

She said the exercise on Sunday is not just a one-off event.
