Blue Carbon: Charting the Path for Governance and Partnerships

Side Event at the United Nations Ocean Conference 2022

Watch Recording

As blue carbon holds great potential as an ocean-based solution to climate change while also generating a broad array of co-benefits, it requires good governance and cross-cutting partnerships to ensure credible long-term project results that engage with best practice principles for a blue carbon market that is sustainable and equitable. It also requires attention to the co-benefits through a process that while valuing carbon removal benefits,  delivers on the broader benefits of rebuilding blue natural capital embedded in blue carbon projects.
