The ocean plays a dominant role in the global carbon cycle, and coastal ecosystems are a crucial part of our effort to combat climate change. Serving as an introductory briefing, this session brings together science and policy experts to explore the ability of coastal ecosystems to be a natural climate solution by sequestering and storing carbon, while helping countries and communities adapt to the effects of climate change and improving coastal resilience.
