The PNW Blue Carbon Working Group is a collaborative group of scientists, restoration practitioners, conservation leaders, land managers, policy experts, carbon finance experts, and funding program leaders committed to developing coastal blue carbon in the Pacific Northwest as a conservation and management tool to help mitigate the effects of climate change.
Building on projects already completed, members of the PNW Blue Carbon Working Group are undertaking a variety of research projects designed to address PNW coastal blue carbon research needs.
The mission of the PNW Coastal Blue Carbon Working Group is to develop coastal blue carbon as a conservation and management tool, so that the conservation and restoration of Pacific Northwest tidal wetland ecosystems can help to mitigate climate-related changes using carbon credits, markets and trades.
The Membership of the working group includes scientists, restoration practitioners, conservation leaders, land managers, policy and carbon market experts, representatives from carbon registries, and funding program leaders, as well as representatives from key government agencies. The working group reflects broad regional and national interest in coastal blue carbon.
