Update: Blue Carbon & SBSTA 34 (Bonn, Germany)

Blue Carbon discussed at UN Climate Change Discussions - SBSTA 34, Bonn Germany

Blue carbon was discussed again on Friday, June 10, at the 34th session of the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA 34).

According to the Earth Negotiations Bulletin (ENB) report, SBSTA Facilitator Ould-Dada noted that a number of parties were of the view that blue carbon was not mature enough and that related issues, such as mangroves, could be addressed under REDD+ (see ENB, Vol 12 No 507 - 11 June 2011).

Discussions will continue…
