The ZMT policy briefs are part of a series of briefings aiming to inform policy makers on key results of ZMT research, and to provide them with specific recommendations for environmental policies.

They also illustrate the high practical and political relevance of ZMT's research across tropical coastal areas. Every policy brief will be published in English and in the language of the partner country, where appropriate.
