Enabling factors

Existing knowledge about mangrove ecosystem, existing mangrove images, network with subject experts

Lessons learned

One department or organization needs to take ownership of the initiative. Validation of scientific information and images is important. Validation of translation is important. Mobile app needs to be user friendly and smaller in size. Mobile app can be downloaded once and then used offline because mangroves areas have poor internet connectivity
