Mainstreaming Blue Carbon into national agenda to meet global commitments

  • 17 – 18 July 2018, Jakarta, Indonesia
  • Blue carbon is in abundance along Indonesia’s shores, stored in mangroves and seagrass meadows. It promises significant economic advantages through well-preserved fisheries and aquaculture and offers climate change mitigation because it protects against rising sea levels.
  • Blue Carbon is increasingly gaining attention from national and international leaders, scientific community, business actors, and civil society. CIFOR collaborated with AIPI together bring the issues associated with optimizing Blue Carbon potential in a high platform.

  • To facilitate dialogue across sector and stakeholders concern with Blue Carbon issues
  • To identify gaps and barriers that hinder the mainstreaming of coastal Blue Carbon in the national development agenda and to meet global commitments
