Out of all the biological carbon (or green carbon) captured in the world, over half is captured by. .

Out of all the biological carbon (or green carbon) captured in the world, over half is captured by marine living organisms – hence it is called ‘blue carbon’. Although emissions’ reductions are currently at the centre of the climate change debate, the critical role that oceans and ocean ecosystems play has been vastly overlooked. The objective of this report is to highlight their essential function in maintaining our climate and to assist policy makers to mainstream an oceans agenda into national and international climate change initiatives.

Oceans and coastal ecosystems play an important role in the global carbon cycle and have removed about 25% of the carbon . The role of healthy oceans in binding carbon" (PDF).

Rising ocean temperatures and ocean acidification means that the capacity of the ocean carbon sink will gradually get weaker, giving rise to global concerns expressed in the Monaco and Manado Declarations. Archived from the original (PDF) on 2011-07-24.

Blue Carbon: The Role Of The Ocean As A Climate. Balance In The Mitigation Of Climate Change. The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) sets out several targets for reducing Green House Gas (GHG) emissions in the context of climate change mitigation. Blue carbon in Indonesia is stored in the marine environment and has great potential as an absorber or hoarder of carbon dioxide that can reduce GHG emissions. UNEP/Earthprint, 2009.
