Building on the results of the Abu Dhabi Blue Carbon Demonstration Project, the National Blue Carbon Project extended the baseline assessment of the total carbon stocks of mangroves to the Northern and Eastern Emirates.

The Decision-maker Summary outlines the efforts, which included field surveys that specifically quantify the carbon of mangroves ecosystems, capacity-building for those interested in learning Blue Carbon and mangrove ecology sampling approaches, and extensive laboratory and computer analysis to determine carbon stocks in a scientifically defensible manner. It also highlights the results of the Project.
