CC mitigation

New finding: Surprisingly large amounts of carbon stored in mangrove forests, especially below ground

SB-32 change mitigationidentified the limitation of the IPCC 2006 for GHGs National Inventory

SB-34 we organized a Side event to synergize adaptation strategies and measures

Invited by IPCC to develop new methodologies for GHGs inventories in wetlands

Tropical wetlands for CC adaptation and mitigation in the global agenda

UNFCCC Side Event


Wetlands for change mitigation

CC adaptation

  • Joint CIFOR-CATIE research on tropical forests and climate change adaptation in Honduras influenced the design of one of the first projects ever approved by the UNFCCC’s Adaptation Fund Board

  • Can we do the same for Bangladesh?

  • National agencies should be involved  BCAS?


The world mangroves change mitigation

The Sundarbands

  • The world's largest remaining single block of mangrove (10,000 km2)

  • Delta front has undergone a net erosion of ~170 km2 of coastal land in the 40 years

CC change mitigationmitigation has been widely recognized than adaptation

Synergizing CC adaptation and mitigation is not an option

Wetlands have a huge potential for CC adaptation and mitigation

Scientific communities see CC adaptation as policy relevant

This may encourage business community to play its roles

The way forward
