Prioritizing Wetlands for Blue Carbon

The NYDEC Office of Climate Change is partnering with the US Climate Alliance (USCA) and others to map and model blue carbon sequestration and resilience potential in the tidal wetlands in the Hudson River Estuary, Long Island, and New York City. The mapping project also explores how that potential will be impacted by sea level rise. The results will advance the understanding of potential storage and conservation of blue carbon in New York.

This workshop, held on October 7, 2020, was a way for key representatives from regions of New York included in the project to explore the results and move blue carbon research and policy forward.
