IUCN will share its experience working in the Blue Carbon space for the last 14 years, and most recently managing the Blue Carbon Accelerator Fund (BCAF). The BCAF was established by Australia and IUCN as a dedicated funding scheme with a vision to help increase coastal blue carbon ecosystems conservation and restoration for the benefits to climate change mitigation and adaptation, biodiversity and livelihoods of coastal communities.
