The Management of Natural Coastal Carbon Sinks

This report focuses on the management of natural coastal carbon sinks. There is a lack of recognition and focus on coastal marine ecosystems to complement activities already well advanced on land to address the best practice management of carbon sinks. This report provides essential evidence needed to motivate discussions and initiatives on how coastal ecosystems should be incorporated into international and national emission reduction strategies, national greenhouse gas inventories and carbon revenue schemes.
