The inaugural workshop for the International Partnership for Blue Carbon was held in Bogor, Indonesia, on 23-24 August 2016. The workshop was very successful, with participants agreeing on the Partnership’s objectives, coordination and priority actions. Discussions on future activities focused on catalysing project development at larger scales in priority regional ‘hotspots’, and linking blue carbon projects with climate finance.
Thank you to all workshop participants for your valuable contributions to the discussion, and to all who provided input and support in the lead up to the workshop. Thank you in particular to CIFOR for hosting us all in the beautiful forests of Bogor.
