[Leaders Times]  The Korea Forest Service announced on the 17th that South Korea has become the 42nd member of the Mangrove Alliance for Climate (MAC), a collaborative effort led by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Indonesia. This alliance, which includes nations like Germany, India, and Japan, aims to combat climate change through the protection and restoration of mangrove forests.

  

The MAC is a consultative body established to safeguard mangrove ecosystems, which are crucial for carbon sequestration and natural disaster mitigation. South Korea's admission into the alliance was influenced by its successful mangrove restoration initiatives in Vietnam, Guyana, and the Pacific Islands, as well as in areas of Indonesia affected by the 2005 tsunami.

  

Mangrove forests, consisting of trees and shrubs that thrive along tropical and subtropical coastlines, are noted for storing four to five times more carbon than terrestrial rainforests. These ecosystems not only provide vital habitats for diverse marine species but also offer robust protection against natural disasters such as tsunamis and rising sea levels.

 

The increasing frequency and intensity of these disasters, driven by climate change, have highlighted the significance of mangroves in carbon dioxide absorption and marine ecosystem preservation.

  

Nam Sung-hyun, head of the Korea Forest Service, stated, "We are committed to advancing mangrove restoration projects to shield vulnerable developing nations from the impacts of natural disasters like tsunamis and typhoons… By enhancing collaboration with fellow MAC member countries, South Korea aims to play a key role in global disaster management and climate change mitigation."
