New video tells the story of Blue Carbon in Abu Dhabi

A new video released today tells the story of the Abu Dhabi Blue Carbon Demonstration Project, which aims to improve our understanding of the other ecosystem services that coastal Blue Carbon ecosystems provide in Abu Dhabi. “Blue Carbon” refers to the ability of coastal vegetation, including mangrove forests, saltmarshes, seagrass beds, sabkhas and cyanobacterial mats, to sequester and store atmospheric carbon in biomass and sediments. The project is facilitated by AGEDI and supported by an expert team led by GRID-Arendal, including UNEP, UNEP-WCMC, Forest Trends, and a group of world-class coastal carbon scientists.
