Evaluating the Current and Future Capacity for Natural Climate Solutions in Canada's Oceans
Climate change is rapidly altering the planet. Solutions are urgently required to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and limit further warming. Meeting Canada’s commitments under the Paris Agreement requires an accounting of all mitigation options, including natural climate solutions.

Coastal ecosystems, including salt marshes, seagrass meadows, kelp forests, and marine soft sediments are increasingly recognized as marine carbon reservoirs, known as blue carbon. Yet, despite having the world's longest coastline, Canada has yet to account for ocean carbon sinks in its GHG inventories.

Our research will produce the critically-needed nationwide assessment of the capacity for Canada's oceans to serve as natural climate solutions, now and in the future.

This project is led by Dr. Julia K. Baum at the University of Victoria but is made up of students and researchers at 8 different universities and 7 partner organizations.
