A CPO-supported workshop on the climate mitigation and adaptation benefits of coastal blue carbon will take place in San Juan, Puerto Rico on July 13-14.
Participants will learn about the economics of blue carbon; the basics of coastal landscape project planning, models, and implementation practices; and the many co-benefits of combining blue carbon projects with traditional conservation and restoration activities. Special emphasis will be placed on exploration of greenhouse gas benefits provided by tidal wetlands, salt marshes, seagrasses, mangroves, and other coastal ecosystems in Puerto Rico.

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
