MARRAKESH, MOROCCO – Wetlands, forests and oceans absorb and store carbon, which makes them a vital asset for countries pursuing the Paris climate agreement’s targets for reducing CO2 emissions. So how can we use them most effectively?
The Paris accord was concluded by 196 governments last December and came into force earlier this month. Now, its signatories just finished meeting in Marrakesh, Morocco, for the annual United Nations climate change conference. Several conference events specifically focused on how countries can use natural systems to meet their CO2 reduction targets.
