Emerging Opportunities for Coastal Wetland Carbon Projects

This presentation was given by Dr. Mortiz von Unger at a COP20 side-event titled "Guiding Principles for Delivering Coastal Wetland Carbon Projects" in Lima, Peru. Coastal wetland ecosystems play a significant role in sequestering and storing carbon in biomass and soils. These ecosystems, however, are facing tremendous pressure and large portion of them are already degraded due to unsustainable cuttings and aquaculture development. This panel discussed options for policy and practice for improving sustainability and realizing the full mitigation and adaptation potential of coastal wetland ecosystems.
