Blue Carbon Coral Triangle Discussion Paper

Encouraging Innovation in Climate Change Adaptation

In keeping with our focus on innovation, TierraMar is actively engaged in helping clients keep abreast of new trends and developments in the marine sector such as the investment potential of Blue Carbon. We prepared a widely distributed Discussion Paper for Decision Makers “Blue Carbon – a new concept for reducing the impacts of climate change by conserving coastal ecosystems in the Coral Triangle”.

This report has been widely distributed and translated into Indonesian Bahasa.  It has been used extensively by the Indonesia Government as a precursor to national policy development for blue carbon initiatives in that country.

“Without coastal ecosystems many people, communities and countries would suffer serious economic hardship through impacts to critical industries such as fishing, aquaculture and tourism. In addition, the wellbeing of many coastal communities would decline as essential needs like protein, fuel wood, shelter, clean water and storm surge protection could not be met.”
