Overview

The Abu Dhabi Blue Carbon Demonstration Project aims to improve our understanding of carbon sequestration and the other ecosystem services that coastal blue carbon ecosystems provide in Abu Dhabi. The project will identify options for the incorporation of these values into policy and management, leading to the sustainable use of these ecosystems and their services preserved for future generations. Experience and knowledge gained from the project will also help guide other national blue carbon projects and international efforts.Coastal habitats provide a myriad of essential ecosystem services. They support fisheries, protect shorelines, provide opportunities for tourism and are important for cultural heritage and identity.
