Blue Carbon Ecosystems – what’s included, what’s not, and why?

Published: February 8, 2017

With increasing recognition of the role natural systems have in climate mitigation, where should management initiatives focus? In this webinar, authors of a recently published paper – Clarifying the role of coastal and marine systems in climate mitigation – analyze the scientific evidence and potential management role of several coastal and marine ecosystems to determine which should be prioritized within current climate mitigation strategies and policies. Findings can assist decision-makers and conservation practitioners to understand where management actions can have additional carbon benefits.
