Event description

Description

Coastal wetlands are an integral part of the Florida landscape, providing many benefits to the surrounding community. A newly recognized benefit is the ability of coastal wetlands to address adaptation and resiliency goals through carbon capture ("blue carbon"). Blue Carbon presents a new opportunity to address cliamte adaptation and mitigation, and tap into carbon finance to support coastal restoration and protection through market incentives.

Through this workshop, participans will learn:

  • What is blue carbon, and how can coastal wetland restoration/protection support sustainability goals?
  • How coastal wetland restoration can generate revenue and contribute to carbon neutrality
  • Blue Carbon in Florida - case studies of realizing blue carbon potential in Tampa and Naples

This workshop is for regional planning council members, sustainability coordinators, economic developers, urban planners, NGOs, resource managers, local/regional government, etc.

Workshop sponsors include: National Estuarine Research Reserve System Science Collaborative, Restore America's Estuaries, Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council, Tampa Bay Estuary Program and Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.
