Oceanic Blue Carbon
Responding to the call from the UN Environment and the Global Environment Facility for innovative actions to help address climate change...
The report, jointly produced by GRID-Arendal, a collaborating center with UNEP, and Blue Climate Solutions, a project of The Ocean Foundation, presents eight Fish Carbon mechanisms and raises options for the future of international climate change mitigation efforts and ocean management. The report includes a preface by Sylvia Earle, Founder of Mission Blue and a former Chief Scientist of NOAA, who notes that “acknowledging the importance of marine life in climate change will not only provide much needed opportunities in climate mitigation, but will simultaneously enhance food security for coastal and island communities, while safeguarding biodiversity and marine ecosystems on a global scale, particularly in the unprotected high seas.”
