IPBC Partners are working together to connect and share expertise on blue carbon with the global community through events, workshops and knowledge exchange sessions.
Host: The International Partnership for Blue Carbon
Facilitator: Dr. Kirsten Isensee, IPBC Coordinator Team, IOC-UNESCO
The International Partnership for Blue Carbon (IPBC) celebrates its growth to reach 50 Partners from government agencies, NGOs, research institutions and intergovernmental organisations. With a joint vision to protect, sustainably manage and restore global coastal blue carbon ecosystems, Partners are helping each other by sharing knowledge and expertise, building collaborations and working together to tackle policy issues and barriers to the implementation of blue carbon projects. This event provides opportunity for you to engage with IPBC Partners, hear their reflections on how partnerships are supporting positive outcomes and find out more about the new Blue Carbon Accelerator Fund.
