The Project will harness the expertise of multiple U.S. agencies and partners to advance the development of tools, approaches, and capacity for integrating coastal blue carbon, such as seagrasses and mangroves, in the preparation of national greenhouse gas inventories in select developing countries.
The NOAA Blue Carbon Inventory Project harnesses capabilities across NOAA and the U.S. Government to provide international technical assistance and peer-to-peer learning focused on coastal blue carbon, ecosystem services (including co-benefits for adaptation and mitigation), and coastal resilience.
The NOAA Blue Carbon Inventory Project addresses the nexus of climate, ecosystems and the human communities that depend on them, and provides opportunities to explore co-benefits for mitigation and adaptation. The effort also demonstrates how NOAA can work across line offices and the U.S. government agency community to share scientific, technical, and stewardship knowledge and experience with other countries
Researchers funded by CPO's Climate and Societal Interactions (CSI) Division utilize partnerships and engagement activities to develop knowledge and decision support tools that can better address the risk management needs of specific sectors and stakeholders.
Results show that both the onset and size of the 2018 dengue outbreak in Réunion island could have been accurately predicted two weeks in advance, with some accuracy three to four weeks in advance — enough time for enhanced preparedness measures.
The Climate Program Office (CPO) manages competitive research programs in which NOAA funds high-priority climate science, assessments, decision support research, outreach, education, and capacity-building activities designed to advance our understanding of Earth’s climate system, and to foster the application of this knowledge in risk management and adaptation efforts. CPO-supported research is conducted in regions across the United States, at national and international scales, and globally. Learn more...
Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather.
