Abu Dhabi Blue Carbon Demonstration Project Comes to a Close
After one year of intense work, field missions across the Emirate and fruitful consultation with a broad range of supportive stakeholders, the Abu Dhabi Blue Carbon Demonstration Project comes to a close. Scientific assessments were produced that significantly enhance the understanding of the contribution of Blue Carbon ecosystems to the well-being of Abu Dhabi and its residents. Experts studied the geographic extent and carbon content of mangroves, salt marsh, seagrass, algal mats and sabkha, the other ecosystem services their provide, and the policy options and financial mechanisms that support their conservation.
