European Regional Hub for Blue Carbon

European Regional Hub for Blue Carbon 1920 1080 Ocean Decade

Lead institution:

Joint Programming Initiative Healthy and Productive Seas and Oceans (JPI Oceans) – Belgium

Euro-BC will initially focus on establishing a multidisciplinary network that enables knowledge sharing and best practices, enabling a platform to include a database of habitat extent and vulnerability and a repository of carbon stock and sequestration rate data.

The European Regional Hub on Blue Carbon (Euro-BC) will be embedded in the Global Ocean – Blue Carbon (GO-BC) Decade programme to facilitate knowledge transfer, strengthen collaborative efforts, and act as a conduit through which individual European BC projects can connect to the global programme. It also aims to summarise state of the art and produce a policy roadmap focusing on BC in different European legislative drivers. Euro-BC builds on a pan-European expert network of JPI Oceans on Blue Carbon (Blue Carbon Knowledge Hub).
