Blue Carbon Project: Pre-Feasibility Assessment

The client commissioned Silvestrum Climate Associates in March 2016 to evaluate options for blue carbon project development in Pohnpei and potentially beyond. We provided a pre-feasibility assessment to identify key elements and gaps on the way to the development of a blue carbon project focussing on mangrove conservation and restoration, and a scoping tool for further project development. The team expanded its analysis to also address other blue carbon development options, in particular in the field of policy development, and carbon project options in the uplands.
