Blue carbon is in abundance along Indonesia’s shores, stored in mangroves and seagrass meadows. It promises significant economic advantages through well-preserved fisheries and aquaculture and helps mitigate climate change, acting as a buffer against rising sea levels. Participants will exchange information and ideas at the Blue Carbon Summit, providing the basis for building a roadmap for blue carbon development.
