New information product: an introduction for policy makers

The Partnership has released a new information product especially for policy makers.  It can be downloaded in PDF here or from the Resources page of the website.

Coastal blue carbon: an introduction for policy makers’ describes some of the challenges and opportunities in developing policies and undertaking projects to protect and restore coastal blue carbon ecosystems. It provides a snapshot of the significant progress made in science, policy and practical action for coastal blue carbon ecosystems, and case studies highlighting projects, policy approaches and initiatives from around the world.

It is hoped the introductory document will serve as a reference for policy makers who are new to the concept of blue carbon and coastal blue carbon ecosystems, and as a resource for more experienced practitioners seeking to bring a greater focus on blue carbon in their jurisdictions.

The University of Queensland and the Australian Government Department of the Environment and Energy led the development of the document, with valuable contributions from other partners.
