Carbobo Azul – Métodos para evaluar las existencias y los factores de emisión de carbono en manglares, marismas y pastos marinos.
Coastal ecosystems are critical to maintaining human well-being and global biodiversity. Mangroves, marshes and seagrass sequester and store significant amounts of blue carbon from the atmosphere and ocean, and are now recognized for their role in mitigating climate change. The conservation and restoration of these coastal ecosystems has been increasingly addressed in international and national climate change mitigation policies and financing mechanisms. To date, however, countries have not incorporated blue carbon into their portfolio of climate change mitigation or coastal management policies and actions, largely because blue carbon assessment mechanisms were not well defined or standardized.
