Are the mangroves for the future : empirical evidence of the value of Miani Hor Mangrove Ecosystem as the basis for investments
IUCN Grey Literature
Abstract: 

This study focuses on Damb Village, Balochistan, which is a site of a naturally occurring mangrove forest in Miani Hor lagoon. The latest mangrove vegetation map prepared by SUPARCO using SPOT imagery in 2003 suggests that 86,727 ha are under mangrove forests along Pakistan’s coast. Most notably it can be seen that 4.68 percent of mangrove forests in Pakistan exist in Balochistan (Miani Hor, Kalmat Hor and Jiwani) of which Miani Hor contains 84 percent of the total area under mangroves in Balochistan. The study attempts to undertake an economic valuation of the Miani Hor mangrove ecosystem.
