Blue Carbon – a Business Case for the repair of Australia’s coastal wetlands


TierraMar undertook a technical and management review of the comparative carbon sequestration and mitigation opportunities across the Australian landscape and primary industries as the basis of a policy and management framework for blue carbon and coastal ecosystems conservation and repair for Australia (Fisheries Research and Development Corporation Project 2011/084). From this groundbreaking report, TierraMar facilitated a forum in partnership with FRDC to develop a Climate Change Resilience, Adaptation
and Mitigation Action Plan for repairing key Australian estuarine and coastal wetland ecosystems; and a Business Case that provided projections quantifying the opportunities, benefits and relative return on investment of estuary and wetland repair for priority sites across Australia.
