Question: What are your top habitats for sequestration versus storage? With the focus on climate mitigation at the moment, it would be interesting to know your priority policy actions in relation to sequestration - thanks
I assume that the Crown Estate is involved as a key stakeholder? Are they also involved as a company who could/should be offseting C in relation to their commercial activities?
In South Devon we are trying to remove our invasive Pacific oysters but a common question is if they might be helping to store some detritus carbon within pseudofaecal matter? May be better to restore native oyster beds?
I’m really interested in the difference between ‘informing publics’ and ‘involving publics’ in these projects and the different priorities given to this part of restoration projects. For example John saying that his project has foundations which have taken years of close working with whole communities and many challenging moments. We have to act quickly to respond to the climate and ecological emergency and also in a democratic, creative way which involves people - there is a tension here - does anyone want to respond to this (“Tell me and I will forget, show me and I may remember; involve me and I will understand.”) - Anne-Marie - Tidelines
Is any research being done on the economic / financial aspects of blue carbon restoration in order to build up a business case for investment.
That also links Jo Salter to comments about how damage can be unwittingly done via public
Does anyone know whether there's any work underway seeking to validate blue carbon being sequestered in new coastal habitats for use as carbon credits?
Is there any information of what proportion of total carbon storage does the marine environment account for?
There is an ongoing national project looking at the level of Carbon within the country's saltmarshes … C-something ?
