Integrating Coastal Wetlands Data into Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventories for Developing Countries: A New International Blue Carbon Initiative

Lead Organizations

Contribution Description

This project will utilize the expertise of the U.S. government to develop tools and templates that facilitate the preparation of GHG inventories consistent with IPCC guidelines, particularly the 2013 IPCC Wetlands Supplement, and will provide technical assistance to strategic developing countries to build capacity in this area. The increased accuracy of information in GHG inventories will promote better management strategies of wetlands that will lead to reduced GHG emissions and better protection of coastal ecosystems.
