The International Partnership for Blue Carbon has had a busy year in 2016. As well as being showcased at the UNFCCC’s COP22 in Marrakech, the Partnership featured at the IUCN World Conservation Congress held in Hawai‘i in September 2016. A blog piece published by National Geographic in December gives a report on the workshop at the Congress titled ‘Using blue carbon to foster conservation and restoration of coastal ecosystems’, which was led by our partner, the Blue Carbon Initiative.
The blog piece acknowledges the International Partnership for Blue Carbon for our efforts to accelerate practical action and our recognition of blue carbon for multiple ecosystem services. Many of our partners were involved in the workshop, with representatives from NOAA, IUCN, Blue Ventures, the Nature Conservancy, Conservation International, and the Australian Government all in attendance.
