The concept note was submitted by Oceans 2050 (external) [supported by Carbonomics] and was reviewed by Verra, per Section 3.2.5 of the VCS Methodology Development and Review Process, v.4.4 (PDF). It was archived on June 11, 2024, because development has not proceeded to the next step of the VCS Methodology Development and Review Process. Oceans 2050 has provided input during the development of M0172 Methodology Framework for Seaweed Carbon Projects.
