This Blue Carbon Module compiles the latest scientific guidance and tools to help managers, researchers, practitioners, and governments understand how blue carbon can be measured and utilized to promote conservation and restoration of coastal ecosystems.

Specifically, we explore:

  • What is blue carbon?
  • Guidance for developing and implementing a blue carbon project
  • Methods for assessing carbon stocks and emissions from blue carbon ecosystems
  • How to integrate the protection & restoration of blue carbon ecosystems into national and sub-national policies and financial mechanisms

This resource was developed through a partnership of the Reef Resilience Network, Conservation International, International Union for Conservation of Nature, Restore America’s Estuaries, Blue Ventures, Silvestrum Climate Associates, and Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission – United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization.
