Coastal blue carbon (mangroves) and climate change

Auditorium (Floor 2)
Mangroves are among the most carbon-rich forests in the tropics and support numerous ecosystem services for coastal communities. These forests form an important part of the carbon stored in coastal ecosystems, called “coastal blue carbon.” They could play a significant role in reducing emissions, while also supporting biodiversity conservation, fisheries habitat protection and disaster risk reduction. Despite their large ecological effects, mangroves have suffered huge pressures of land-use change and conversion. Potential discussion topics:
  • Causes, patterns and consequences of changes in mangrove ecosystems
  • Roles of mangroves in livelihoods and ecosystem services
  • Conservation and restoration: challenges and opportunities
  • Mangroves in the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and Paris Agreement
