Coastal blue carbon (seagrass) and climate change

Auditorium (Floor 2)
Despite Indonesia being recognized as having seagrass ecosystems with some of the greatest diversity in the world, the sustainability and management of these ecosystems receive relatively little attention. Many critical and significant roles of seagrass such as carbon sequestration and storage, the stabilization of sustainable artisanal fisheries and other services need to be explored further. Potential discussion topics:
  • Seagrass meadows: below-water treasures and their ecosystem services
  • Carbon sequestration and storage by seagrass
  • Seagrass in the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and Paris Agreement
  • Seagrass and the local economy
