In order to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, huge mobilisation of carbon sinks via nature-based solutions is of paramount importance.
Among these solutions, coastal ecosystems, such as mangroves, brackish marshes and seagrass beds, have vast capacity for carbon sequestration. The carbon captured and stored in these ecosystems is called blue carbon.
To answer these questions, EcoAct experts provide you with an analysis of the main challenges and opportunities of blue carbon.
