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 Policy Working Group, hosted by Conservation International in Arlington, Virginia USA on May 30-31 2013. The workshop focused on issues including: the status of coastal carbon sinks under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the development of blue carbon offsets for carbon markets, and pilot projects in several countries. Ben subsequently monitored the progress of negotiations at the 2013 Bonn United Nations Climate Change Conference as an accredited non-governmental observer.
