Blue Carbon Summit - Forests, Trees and Agroforestry

Blue Carbon Summit

July 17, 2018 - July 18, 2018 The National Library of Indonesia, Jakarta

Blue carbon is in abundance along Indonesia’s shores, stored in mangroves and seagrass meadows. It promises significant economic advantages through well-preserved fisheries and aquaculture and helps mitigate climate change, acting as a buffer against rising sea levels. Participants will exchange information and ideas at the Blue Carbon Summit, providing the basis for building a roadmap for blue carbon development.

The event, which aims at mainstreaming blue carbon into the national agenda to meet global commitments, is being organized by AIPI, the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA) and the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF). Find out more via the concept note or the event webpage.
