The Report on the Danone Wetland Carbon Partnership, looks at all the aspects necessary to carry out a restoration project, such as at the project finance process as well, the wetland carbon standards and the community and wetland impacts and resources available for the project. This report works as a guideline for similar projects showing a thorough analysis and assessment of what needs to be done in order to reach its set objectives and outcomes.  Earthmind, Guidance for wetland carbon project proposals Wetland carbon standards and the project idea note, 2011 [Published: 2011]

Ecosystem services such as protection from storms and erosion, tourism benefits, and climate adaptation and mitigation have been increasingly recognized as important considerations for environmental policy-making. Recent research has shown that coastal ecosystems such as seagrasses, salt marshes, and mangroves provide climate mitigation services because they are particularly effective at sequestering and storing carbon dioxide, referred to as “coastal blue carbon”. Unfortunately, degradation of blue carbon ecosystems due to anthropogenic impacts contributes to anthropogenic carbon emissions from land use impacts and prevents these ecosystems from continuing to sequester and store carbon. Given the impressive carbon sequestration and storage in coastal ecosystems, many countries with blue carbon re- sources are beginning to implement blue carbon restoration projects using carbon financing mechanisms. This study analysed four case studies of projects in Kenya, India, Vietnam, and Madagascar, evaluating the individual carbon financing mechanisms, the project outcomes, and the policy implications of each. Strengths and challenges of implementing blue carbon projects are discussed and considerations that all projects should address are examined in order to develop long-term sustainable climate mitigation or adaptation policies. This analysis can help to inform future project design considerations as well as policy opportunities.  [Published: 2015]
