Title: Building Blue Carbon Projects: An Introductory Guide

Author: Abu Dhabi Global Environmental Data Initiative (AGEDI)

Short description: Blue Carbon projects can work, by using the value of carbon stored and sequestered in coastal and marine ecosystems to support conservation and sustainable management, a new report shows.

The report, published by Abu Dhabi Global Environmental Data Initiative (AGEDI) and produced by GRID-Arendal, a collaborating center with UNEP, aims to stimulate discussion regarding projects that support the conservation and restoration of coastal ecosystems based on a Blue Carbon approach. It serves as a snapshot of potential common Blue Carbon project elements based on existing projects and an introduction of key issues for consideration. The guide is intended to complement existing Blue Carbon reports and initiatives and potentially stimulate support for further project development.
