Wetlands exchange – lessons learned

The 2013 Supplement to the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories: Wetlands (the Wetlands Supplement) provides guidance to countries on reporting for emissions associated with changes in the land-use of coastal wetlands, including both their conversion and degradation, as well as their restoration.

This document describes the outcomes of a workshop held by the International Partnership for Blue Carbon and University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, July 2018 that addressed the experiences of countries in implementing the Chapter 4 Coastal Wetlands guidance from the Wetlands Supplement.  Government representatives from Australia, Cambodia, Fiji, Malaysia, Mexico, Papua New Guinea, Thailand, United Arab Emirates and the United States joined scientists, non-government organisations to share information at the event.
