Blue Carbon & Blue Carbon Initiative
Blue carbon refers to the carbon captured by living organisms in oceans and stored in the form of biomass and sediments from mangroves, salt marshes and seagrasses.
The International Blue Carbon Initiative is a coordinated, global program focused on mitigating climate change through the conservation and restoration of coastal and marine ecosystems. The Blue Carbon Initiative focuses on mangroves, salt marshes and seagrasses, which are found on every continent except Antarctica.
