Institution and governance system for blue carbon

Governance of blue carbon could produce new and challenging ventures for many countries, including Indonesia. Because of the vast resources involved and the complex governance system required, blue carbon governance requires special attention to optimize the sustainability of the goods and services provided by the resources. Laws will be of global and national importance and may follow on from the existing monitoring and evaluation guidelines that are widely available for blue carbon, such as those provided by the IPCC. Involving local communities may be considered a strategic step to take, in addition to better equipping stakeholders.
