Become a Partner

Partners include governments, international organisations, NGOs and research institutions.

We welcome new members to the Partnership and look forward to working together to protect and conserve coastal blue carbon ecosystems – mangroves, tidal marshes and seagrasses by: building awareness, exchanging knowledge, and accelerating practical action on blue carbon.

Organisations seeking membership should be established entities with the capacity to contribute actively to an international effort. Organisations are not expected to identify financial contributions, and contributions such as sharing of expertise and experience are valuable and welcomed. No funding for participation is available at this time.

In order to formalise membership the coordinating group asks that formal expressions of interest are submitted. For further guidance on joining the Partnership please get in touch with the coordinating group using the Contact Form.
