Restoring blue carbon ecosystems


What's the difference between carbon avoidance and carbon removal?



Climate Solution #40

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 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide-equivalent greenhouse gases by 2050.
