GO-BC will enhance understanding of the ocean-climate nexus and generate new knowledge and solutions to mitigate the effects of climate change.
Recognising the multiple roles BC ecosystems play beyond mitigation, including adaptation and resilience to the effects of climate change, allows GO-BC to address climate responses comprehensively, while supporting people and biodiversity. GO-BC actions will go beyond the traditional focus on coastal ecosystems to deliver new outcomes across estuarine-coastal-open ocean environments. GO-BC will address SDGs 13, 14 and 17 through enhanced scientific cooperation at all levels, including: (1) codesign and implement new research to promote Nature-based Solutions for better ocean sustainability; (2) enhance global to regional collaborative efforts; (3) coordinate capacity building in blue carbon science; and (4) communicate and deliver outputs to policy makers and communities.
