About this Research Topic
Our goal is to build momentum through the Ocean-Climate dialogue within UNFCCC to ensure that Blue Carbon is realized as an important Nature-based Solution for Climate Change, People and Biodiversity.
The Research Topic will be united by a focus on Blue Carbon in a broad sense, including marine ecosystems which extend beyond vegetated coastal habitats. We wish to attract policy-relevant contributions to help raise ambition for Nature as a contribution to the UNFCCC COP26 process, yet we also wish to encourage Blue Carbon conversations beyond the frameworks of the IPCC and capture new ideas and opportunities to account for and manage carbon in a wide range of marine ecosystems.
Keywords: Blue Carbon, Coastal Vegetated Ecosystems, Carbon Sequestration, Carbon Storage, Ecosystem Services, Climate Mitigation, Climate Adaptation, Marine Policy
