Oceanic Blue Carbon Policy Survey Results Now Available!

We are very pleased to share with you the final findings of the policy assessment towards oceanic blue carbon marine vertebrate storage. This is a partnership project between AGEDI and GRID-Arendal.

This study has proved its relevance to the sustainable management of coastal and marine environmental resources and actions to address the global climate change challenge. Even though this assessment is a first-order approximation, it is a ‘world’s first’ in terms of understanding how the ocean can be harnessed to achieve meaningful action to address the global climate change challenge. The results of this study are relevant to the implementation of the concept of blue carbon as well as the management of marine fauna.

We are very pleased to release our latest findings of our partnership project between AGEDI and GRID-Arendal assessing Oceanic Carbon storage.

The UAE Oceanic Blue Carbon project aims to provide an assessment of oceanic blue carbon ecosystems within the UAE. The authors have utilised existing datasets and methods to quantify and assess the capacity for fish, cetaceans, dugongs, sea turtles and seabirds inhabiting UAE’s marine environment to store and sequester carbon. The analysis represents the world’s first oceanic blue carbon audit and policy assessment at the national level and will allow relevant policy and management entities in the UAE to evaluate options for the potential implementation of oceanic blue carbon policies at the local and national level.
