BlueForesting – Climate Resilient Marine Forests for a Sustainable Future

Abstract/Aim
BlueForesting aims to adapt nature-based solutions to the ocean properly grounded in sound climate change and biodiversity science. The project will develop science-based guidance for preserving marine forest functions and services, revealing species genetic diversity and climate refuge areas and promoting the co-development of effective and climate ready NBS. Expected results are of paramount importance as scientific foundations to support future marine protection and reforestation actions in a cost-effective and sustainable way.
