SeaForester partner in new BlueForesting project on climate resilient marine forests for a sustainable future

Marine Forests are amongst the most iconic coastal habitats, supporting rich biodiversity, with the capacity to deliver key ecosystem services and support blue growth. Marine Forests can also be cost-effective nature-based solutions (NBS) with potential to mitigate climate change.

BlueForesting aims to adapt nature-based solutions to the ocean properly grounded in sound climate change and biodiversity science. The project will develop science-based guidance for preserving marine forest functions and services, revealing species genetic diversity and climate refuge areas and promoting the co-development of effective and climate ready NBS. Expected results are of paramount importance as scientific foundations to support future marine protection and reforestation actions in a cost-effective and sustainable way.

 

Blueforesting is financed by the EEA Grants under the Blue Growth program. The EEA Grants represent the contribution of Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway towards a green, competitive and inclusive Europe.
