Publication – Integrating Blue: How Do We Make Nationally Determined Contributions Work for Both Blue Carbon and Local Coastal Communities?

Dahdaleh Institute Planetary Health Fellow Byomkesh Talukder was one of 33 experts in academia, project development, and policy who each developed ten key questions about how to implement Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to optimize Blue Carbon Ecosystem’s integration into policy without compromising livelihoods or social justice. The questions were distilled into ten themes, ranked in order of importance, and found to fall into the three broad categories of people, policy and finance, and science and technology. Critical considerations for successful implementation include genuine participation by communities, inclusive project governance, the integration of local work into national policies and practices, sustaining livelihoods and income, and a simplification of carbon accounting and verification methodologies to lower barriers to entry.
