Mangroves are blue carbon storehouses facing tremendous pressure from unsustainable economic activities. Conservation of intact mangroves and restoration of the degraded ones need coordinated actions from stakeholders. The session is to bring together representatives from various backgrounds in a dialogue to explore mangrove blue carbon market opportunities. Cases in countries like Indonesia may be linked to meeting national emission reduction stipulated in the Nationally Determined Contributions under the Paris Agreement and the UN Decade of Ecosystem Restoration.
