The coastal zones are among the most effective areas on Earth at sequestering carbon from the atmosphere. Treated right, these ecosystems are important cornerstones in climate change mitigation, but if degraded, they instead release large amounts of greenhouse gases, re-enforcing global warming. What is the situation for these ecosystems in the Baltic Sea? Are they threatened? Can they be restored? And how well is blue carbon implemented in climate mitigation policies?
