Blue Carbon in Costa Rica: A Project Pre-Feasibility Assessment

On behalf of Conservation International, Silvestrum performed a pre-feasibility assessment to identify key elements and gaps on the way to the development of a blue carbon project in the Gulf of Nicoya, Costa Rica.

A blue carbon project could be built on four activities: mangrove reforestation of shrimp and salt ponds, restoration of degraded sea-side mangroves, avoided deforestation caused by agricultural encroachment and aquacultures, and avoided deforestation of sea-side mangroves.
