About the webinar

Mangroves, marshes and seagrasses sequester and store significant amounts of carbon from the atmosphere and the ocean. Therefore, they are an essential piece of the solution to climate change. In addition, they provide essential ecosystem services, such as coastal protection against storms and fish hatcheries.

The Blue Carbon International Initiative is a coordinated global program focused on the mitigation of climate change through the conservation and restoration of coastal and marine ecosystems. To support this work, the Initiative is coordinating the International Blue Carbon Working Group and the International Blue Carbon Policy Working Group, which provides guidance for the necessary research, project implementation and policy priorities.

In this webinar we will learn the lessons learned from your work in the Latin America and the Caribbean region. The webinar will be held in Spanish. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LEDS LAC Platform Secretariat: info@ledslac.org
