Description

Integrating biodiversity and carbon sequestration in carbon accounting to build sustainable and resilient biodiverse carbon sinks.

International and national climate mitigation policies have seen a growing interest in approaches to carbon accounting and investments in carbon-rich systems. Increasingly this interest includes a focus on the importance of carbon stored in biodiverse systems, as well as the value of integrating biodiversity and other values into new carbon investments.

Our speakers will discuss the concept of ‘green’ and ‘blue’ carbon accounting in biodiverse systems and explore new approaches to integrating biodiversity, social and cultural values with carbon accounting. They will also examine the impacts of the 2019-20 fire season on Australia’s carbon budget, how carbon stocks are impacted by a changing climate, and strategies for ensuring biodiverse carbon sinks are sustainable and resilient to future shocks.

The Climate Change, Fire, and Biodiversity webinar series is a collaboration between the NESP Threatened Species Recovery and Earth Systems and Climate Change Hubs.
