#IESTurningTheTide — Coastal wetland restoration: Exploring carbon sequestration and accounting

View of green forested wetlands on a cloudy day.

In this event, we heard from Professor Chen Xuechu and Dr James Sippo, who shared details of their work in China and Australia. Case studies looking at coastal marshes in Shanghai and mangrove ecosystems were covered with a particular focus on the carbon sequestration taking place. The session closed by taking a look into the Australian Blue Carbon Method and its development. 

This event was organised in collaboration with Future Earth Coasts as part of our Turning the Tide: systems thinking for a sustainable ocean project, which has been endorsed as a UN Ocean Decade Activity.
