– Introduction to the voluntary carbon market
– Market and policy opportunities
What’s Blue Carbon?
It refers to the carbon and other greenhouse gases captured, stored, and emitted by the world’s coastal ecosystems. This webinar will introduce participants to blue carbon science, concepts, and opportunities to benefit coastal restoration and conservation efforts. We will explore the greenhouse gas benefits provided by tidal wetlands, salt marshes, seagrasses, mangroves, and other coastal ecosystems, cover the basics of how carbon markets work, and what the opportunities are for coastal wetland projects to benefit from carbon finance.
Who should attend?
Those interested in coastal conservation and restoration, including natural resource managers, land owners, land trusts, municipalities, policy makers, planners, real estate professionals, attorneys and financial advisors, academia, and federal, state and local officials.
Presented by Stefanie Simpson, Blue Carbon Program Coordinator, Restore America’s Estuaries.
This webinar is supported by NOAA’s Office of Habitat Conservation, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Coastal Program, and the National Estuarine Research Reserve Science Collaborative.
