Event description
An introduction to Blue Carbon and an exploration of how, where, and to what extent it can play a role in helping Devon achieve net zero

About this event

As Devon develops its Carbon Plan and considers where and how it will work towards net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, it is crucial we both recognise and value the role the county’s coastal and marine environments, and its ‘blue carbon’ store, could potentially play in achieving this ambition.

However, while the notion of Blue Carbon has been around for a while, what it means as a concept is not widely understood, and what it means in the context of practical, local, on the ground initiatives and interventions in places like Devon has yet to be fully explored.

Addressing this deficit, the main aim of the of DMF/LNP organised and hosted Blue Carbon webinar is twofold: i.) to introduce the concept and science of Blue Carbon and ii.) to develop the conversation about how, where and to what extent Blue Carbon ecosystems can mitigate the impacts of climate change in Devon and wider South West peninsula.

To prompt discussion and kick of the conversation we have presentations from Prof. John Baxter (former Principal Marine Adviser at Scottish Natural Heritage, Adviser to the IUCN, and Chairman of the Scottish Blue Carbon Forum), Dr. Richard Unsworth (Swansea University and Director of Project Seagrass), and from Fiona Crouch (Project Manager of the Natural England led LIFE Recreation ReMEDIES project)
