The Mangrove Manifesto

Climate Vision 2050

Mar 22 2023 • 25 mins

In 2050, mangrove forests are thriving across Southeast Asia’s shorelines, protecting coastal communities from flooding and erosion.  The region is a world leader in nature-based solutions to climate challenges.  Environmental scientist Danilo Manolo travels through a protected mangrove forest in a national park in Malaysia to halt an illegal logging operation.

Southeast Asia’s inland conservation initiative, the Heart of Borneo, protects forests the size of Utah in perpetuity. The preserve is a safe habitat for many species and contributes to the economy. Ecotourism is thriving, generating jobs and economic security for many families.

Lavanya Rama Iyer, head of policy and climate change at WWF Malaysia, and Dave Sivaprasad, BCG managing director and partner talk about the importance of adaptation and resilience in combating climate change in Southeast Asia. They share stories about what it’s like to live in harmony with nature in this diverse region.
