Promoting blue carbon as an ecosystem service and nature-based solution for mitigating climate change, the Advanced Study Institute on Coastal Blue Carbon will convene experts and practitioners to share newest research advances, highlight gaps in knowledge and management, and build partnerships on blue carbon research and conservation.

The 2-day session will be pivotal in sharing regional and global information and state-of-the-art research efforts on blue carbon resources. It will include presentations from blue carbon experts, panel discussions and an open forum, which are expected to contribute towards enriching national and regional knowledge and skills on coastal blue carbon, promoting more concrete plans and policies to include blue carbon in national and regional carbon inventories.

All local, mainland and overseas researchers and graduate students are welcome to attend. There is no registration fee to attend the ASI, but you need to cover your own travel and accommodation. A room in the Conference Lodge located in HKUST campus costs about 1000 HK dollars per night. Please register here.
