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.
