Blue carbon is increasingly gaining attention from national and international leaders, the scientific community, business actors and civil society. It is timely to bring the issues associated with optimizing the potential of blue carbon to an important summit.
The Blue Carbon Summit has the following objectives:
- to facilitate dialogue across sectors and among stakeholders concerned with blue carbon issues
- to identify gaps and barriers that hinder the mainstreaming of coastal blue carbon in the national development agenda and to meet global commitments
- to outline the roadmap of blue carbon development in Indonesia in line with the upcoming COP24 in Poland and Our Ocean Conference.
