Delta Blue Carbon, Pakistan
Coastal Wetland Restoration
Like forest and peatlands, coastal wetlands are subject to severe degradation. Restoring mangroves, salt marshes, and seagrasses reduces greenhouse gas emissions. It also enhances their ability to support biodiversity and provide ecosystem services. Protecting 6.06–7.19 million hectares of currently degraded coastal wetlands and allowing natural regrowth to occur would sequester 0.76–1.00 gigatons of carbon dioxide-equivalent greenhouse gases by 2050
