The AGEDI team leveraged its Blue Carbon knowledge to contribute to climate change discussions at the Conference of Parties (COP), COP 21, in Paris, France.
The team highlighted Blue Carbon in panel discussions in the IUCN Pavilion, Taking Implementation of Policy, Programmes and Projects of Blue Carbon Ecosystems to Scale: Identifying the Priority Next Steps and during a speaking opportunity at the GCC Pavilion on GCC regional efforts in their adaptation actions through: water conservation, marine protection, urban planning and desertification; including their mitigation co-benefits.
The GCC Blue Carbon workshop was also discussed at the UNFCCC and UNEP Lima Adaptation Knowledge Initiative (LAKI) session, and the team also ensured a Blue Carbon contribution to a side event showcasing the Arabian Gulf and Red Sea regions’ efforts in their adaptation actions through water conservation, marine protection, urban planning and desertification, including their mitigation co-benefits.
