The Management of Natural Coastal Carbon Sinks

This report focuses on the management of natural coastal carbon sinks. The production of the report has
been stimulated by an apparent 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 the essential evidence needed to motivate discussions and initiatives on how such coastal ecosystems should be incorporated into international and national emission reductionstrategies, national greenhouse gas inventories and, potentially, carbon revenues schemes.
