Coastal Blue Carbon Manual

Coastal Blue Carbon step by step - A new manual for measuring, assessing and analyzing carbon in the field and lab

Increasingly, coastal ecosystems are being recognized for their important role in carbon sequestration and, when degraded, their potential to become sources of carbon emissions. Progress has been made to include these systems in international and national policy and finance mechanisms. The full integration of coastal management activities as part of countries’ portfolio of solutions to mitigate climate change has however not yet been fully achieved due to a lack of technical guidance leading to comparable information and scientific results.
