Event Description

The purpose of this workshop is to increase your understanding of blue carbon concepts and how they can support land conservation and restoration goals and generate new revenue opportunities.

Blue Carbon refers to the carbon and other greenhouse gases captured, stored, and emitted by the world’s coastal ecosystems.  In this workshop we will explore the greenhouse gas benefits provided by tidal wetlands, salt marshes, seagrasses, mangroves, and other coastal ecosystems. Participants will learn about the economics of blue carbon; the basics of coastal landscape project planning, models, and implementation practices; and the many co-benefits of combining blue carbon projects with traditional conservation and restoration activities. 

This workshop is intended for anyone 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, and others.

Workshop Goals:

  • Participants will be able to identify blue carbon applications and its potential to increase the value of coastal wetland conservation and restoration
  • Learn about market and management opportunities using blue carbon
  • Build capacity among local resource managers to incorporate greenhouse gas functions into management plans
  • Assess opportunities and constraints for implementing blue carbon projects
