Training workshop for managers and technicians in the development of Blue Carbon projects
“Blue Carbon” is the carbon assimilated and stored by marine and coastal ecosystems such as wetlands, marshes, mangroves, and seagrass beds. It represents a large natural carbon sink, and as such, can provide new incentives that prioritize restoration and conservation of these important ecosystems.
Comprehensive and innovative Blue Carbon projects are being launched around the world to help consolidate the baseline knowledge and to assess the potential of these ecosystems in order to promote a strong push that will enhance the contribution that these habitats make to mitigate global climate change.
This first workshop aims to develop the capacity of the participants to understand how blue carbon can be measured and utilized to promote conservation and restoration of coastal ecosystems
