Progressing Scotland’s Leadership on Blue Carbon

Marine Scotland is progressing Scotland’s Leadership on Blue Carbon.

The Scottish Government launched the Blue Carbon International Policy Challenge (BCIPC) on 21 April 2022, with awards of up to £10,000 available for five successful projects that will establish blueprints for domestic and international climate action to support the marine ecosystem. Applications are open until 19 May 2022.

The challenge, which will run until the start of October 2022, aims to bring together private, public and third sector organisations from across the globe to increase our collective knowledge of blue carbon habitats, which play an important role in capturing and storing carbon, as well as for climate adaptation and biodiversity.

Each project will address a key question for blue carbon policy, helping to identify the opportunities and barriers to scale up ocean action, in Scotland and internationally.
