Blue carbon enhancement

Blue carbon enhancement

Increase carbon sediment burial with mangroves and wetlands.


Mangroves, tidal marshes, seagrass meadows are tropical trees that grow in coastal ecosystems. They naturally sequester and store significant amounts of carbon from the atmosphere and ocean, therefore called ‘blue’ carbon. 


Enhancing the growth of coastal habitats would increase the sequestration and embedding of blue carbon in ocean sediments.
