Mangrove Dependable Absorb Carbon

Mangrove forests are projected to be the mainstay of carbon emission reduction programs in Indonesia. Although the extent of only 2.5 per cent of our tropical forests, ecosystem disruption have an impact far greater than conventional forest destruction.
It is raised in mangrove international seminar "Conservation and Community Empowerment" organized by the University General Sudirman (Unsoed), Navan, Friday-Saturday (6-7/10/2012). The seminar presented the REDD + Task Force Chairman Kuntoro; Professor Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Germany, Michael Muhlenberg; Chan Hung Tuck of the International Society for Mangrove Ecosystems, and Sanjay Swarup of the NUS Environmental Research Institute, Singapore.
Based on recent data Geospatial Information Agency, mangrove forest in Indonesia is only 3.2 million hectares (ha). The amount is 22 percent of the entire ecosystem kind in the world, is narrower than our tropical forest about 100 million ha.
Muhlenberg, citing research program Ocean and Coastal Policy at Duke University said, destroying 1 ha of mangrove forest, cutting down emissions equivalent to 3-5 ha of tropical forests. Research published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences said the attempt to avoid carbon emissions by conserving mangrove forests do with the cost of U.S. $ 4-10 per tonne of CO2. In other tropical forests reach 10-20 U.S. dollars per ton of CO2.
Chan Hung Tuck says, mangrove forests are categorized wetland can store tons of CO2 per ha 800-1200. The release of emissions into the air in less than mangrove forests on the mainland. Litter decay of aquatic plants do not emit carbon dioxide into the air. Tropical forest plants die off 50 percent carbon.
Kuntoro admit, the new government mangrove serious attention in REDD + schemes after recent years the focus on conventional forest. He encouraged local governments have regulations related to preservation of mangroves.
Unsoed Rector Edy Yuwono said, beginning to feel the impact of the loss of mangrove coastal communities. The destruction of mangroves in the lagoon Segara Anakan cause catches fish, crabs, and clams in Cilacap reduced.
