A New Lifeline for the World’s Mangrove Forests?


A mangrove forest in Cispatá, along Colombia’s Caribbean coast, has become the first to have its carbon stores fully calculated, Conservation International, along with INVEMAR Research Institute, the Omacha Foundation, and Colombia’s environmental authorities CVS and CARSUCRE, announced today.

For the last two years, with funding from Apple, Conservation International and the above stakeholders, together with local communities, have been pioneering a new method for integrating the unique way mangrove forests store carbon – both above water and below it, in their soil – into the international carbon market.
