“Blue carbon” is the carbon stored in coastal and marine ecosystems. These ecosystems include everything from mangroves to seagrass beds and salt marshes. The World Bank's first-of-its-kind blue carbon readiness framework empowers governments to tap into their full blue carbon potential to benefit people and the planet.

This tool helps governments invest in blue carbon to deliver real and scalable impact for their communities and economies and help meet their commitments under the Paris Agreement.
