Bundling seagrass carbon with mangroves
  The high costs of measuring carbon stocks and increments in subtidal seagrass beds mean that fully accredited seagrass carbon projects, using current standards and protocols, are not usually financially viable. The required precision means that any money available from credit sales would be spent on monitoring. One solution is 'bundling' seagrass carbon benefits with accredited carbon from contiguous mangroves, reporting on proxies that link with carbon, such as areal extent, rather than carbon itself. This project will develop protocols and practices to do this at Vanga Blue Forest mangrove conservation project.
