Although the degradation and loss of coastal wetlands has occurred in the past, awareness of their ecological significance has created greater interest in the preservation of existing wetlands, rehabilitation of degraded wetlands and construction of new wetlands.

This manual aims to increase knowledge and understanding of saltwater wetlands and to be a key resource in the field of rehabilitation and management. This manual focuses on the rehabilitation of wetlands influenced by brackish or saline waters. These wetland types are home to swamp forests, saltmarshes, mangrove forests and seagrass beds.
