General information

When a coastal and / or saline Mediterranean wetland is destroyed, does not have an optimal state of conservation or is not properly managed, it can transform from a carbon sink to an emitter of Greenhouse Gases (GHG).

For this reason, we establish management guidelines for Mediterranean wetlands so that they function as carbon sinks, also maintaining their ecological integrity, functionality and providing the services of a healthy ecosystem.

We work to provide a methodology that allows both quantifying GHG emissions and conserving the services it provides, also helping to prioritize in decision-making which actions to implement to favor not only its role to tackle climate change but also the conservation of these wetland-dependent species, true biodiversity hotspots.

We provide training to managers and decision-makers on the enormous carbon storage potential of certain wetlands, until now underestimated in climate change policies. Management measures also support adaptation, as the restoration of wetlands increases their resilience to climate change.

We propose mechanisms for the private initiative to join voluntarily by creating a methodology that allows the offsetting of GHG emissions in the voluntary carbon market. The compensation of emissions reflects the environmental commitment of an organization that also has benefits associated with its corporate image. Wetland conservation projects not only offset emissions, they also offer added value in biodiversity and serve as compensation for the water footprint, thus improving various ecosystem services, in addition to branding, the relationship with stakeholders, and with it their market value.
