Bridging the Data Gap
Bridging the gap of access to high-quality environmental information, data, expertise and capacity between
developed and developing countries is an essential step in our joint struggle towards halting the loss of
biodiversity and fighting climate change.
The Abu Dhabi Blue Carbon Demonstration Project has helped us in advancing the knowledge on Blue Carbon
ecosystems, particularly in arid regions, and has brought together a range of experts from across the Blue Carbon
community, to study ecosystems, explore new scientific ground and share experiences that will support future
related projects and initiatives.
Through the project we support local and global efforts in conserving marine and coastal ecosystems. As a key
partner in the Global Environment Facility’s Blue Forest Project, we will continue to work with partners from
around the planet to enable well-informed, science-based decision-making as a foundation for the sustainable
development of our global society.
