    Indonesia’s coastlines are home to more mangrove forests than anywhere else. They protect the land from erosion and absorb carbon emissions, protecting people’s livelihoods and their health. Over the past few years, a lot of mangroves have been cut down for tourism or industrial developments but now, individual groups and the government are promising to do more to protect them.
