Blue Carbon Scientific Working Group

By Centre for Law and Environment , on 18 May 2013

As a component of the Centre’s project investigating legal implications of blue carbon, Ben Milligan participated in a workshop of the International Blue Carbon Scientific Working Group, hosted by the University of Technology (UTS), Sydney on May 15-17 2013. The workshop focused on blue carbon science and policy opportunities in Australia and the Coral Triangle region, including discussions regarding seagrass research and blue carbon modelling and mapping. On May 16 workshop participants were treated to a tour of Towra Point and Silvers Beach in Botany Bay and were presented with an overview of the region’s tidal marsh, mangrove and seagrass habitats.
