Wall Street Journal: “To Slow Climate Change, Australia Turns to Its Coastline”

This article by Mike Cherney in the The Wall Street Journal discusses the exciting potential of blue carbon projects to store atmospheric carbon and slow climate change. Blue carbon ecosystems, such as mangroves and tidal marshes, can store more carbon per acre than land-based forests and are a key aspect of using nature-based solutions to slow climate change.

The article mentions the recent approval of a mangrove project in Colombia, the first blue carbon conservation project approved by Verra.
