Mangrove trees are remarkable coastal ecosystems, thriving in the challenging interface between land and sea. So, Abu Dhabi decided to plant 10 mangrove trees for every visitor attending COP28.

Mangroves play a pivotal role in reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Furthermore, they offer a haven for countless species of birds, fish, and crustaceans.

Under the patronage of Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed, Abu Dhabi is planting 10 mangrove trees for every visitor at COP28
