<p>This publication was prepared for ‘Income for coastal communities for mangrove protection’ project (2015-2016) which aimed to develop a low-cost mechanism enabling investors to responsibly promote mangrove conservation, carbon emissions reduction and sustainable development through the provision of funding to local communities. This report reviews sources of funding for mangrove protection with particular focus on Pakistan, Thailand and Viet Nam. Because of the role of mangroves in climate change adaptation, climate change mitigation and disaster risk management, sources of financing targeting these objectives are included along with financing sources aiming specifically at mangrove conservation and restoration.</P>This is the first in a series of four publications intended to be used in conjunction in establishing sustainable financing for mangrove protection in Asia. The titles and links of the four publications are as follows:<ul><li><a href=""><i><i>Financing for mangrove protection;</i></a></li><li><a href=""><i> Mangrove-related policy and institutional frameworks in Pakistan, Thailand and Viet Nam;</i></a></li> <li><a href=""><i>Mangrove carbon estimator and monitoring guide;</i></a></li></li> <li><a href=""><i>Incentive allocation for mangrove protection.</i></a></li></ul>
