Carbon Stock Loss in Mangrove Forests

Mangrove forest destruction caused as much as 122 million tonnes of carbon to be released to the atmosphere globally between 2000 and 2015. As a result of 3,957 ha of mangroves being deforested between 2000 and 2015, India ranked eighth worldwide for the amount of carbon stock loss. However, since India has been effective in its efforts to curtail mangrove deforestation, it is also among the top 20 for the amount of soil carbon storage in mangrove forests globally. Carbon stock refers to the amount of carbon stored in the forest ecosystem. It helps mitigate the impact of greenhouse gases, which lead to global warming and climate change. Soil carbon—the amount of carbon stored in soil—is the basis of fertility.
