The aim of the International Partnership for Blue Carbon (IPBC) is to protect and restore coastal blue carbon ecosystems by:
- building awareness
- exchanging knowledge, and
- accelerating practical action
The Partnership is not a funding body, but instead aims to better connect the efforts of governments, research organisations and non-government organisations. It also aims to build on the significant initiatives already under way in this area.
About 50 countries have recognised the value of blue carbon in their Nationally Determined Contributions to the Paris Agreement (NDCs). The Partnership, over time, will build awareness and capacity to enable additional countries to include blue carbon in their NDCs. Future actions will include catalysing project development at larger scales in priority regional ‘hotspots’ and linking blue carbon projects with climate finance.
AGEDI became a partner in 2016. We also provide technical support through the Working Group on Methodology
AGEDI also hosted in partnership with the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE) the 2nd annual workshop here in Abu Dhabi during July 2017.
