Case Study: South Australia's Blue Carbon Strategy

South Australia’s Blue Carbon Strategy 2020-2025 establishes a state-wide, evidence-based program of projects and research geared towards blue carbon ecosystem protection and restoration.

It prioritises:

  • investigating finance mechanisms including carbon markets for coastal restoration activities, recognising that land-based carbon sequestration projects are eligible under the ERF, with established methods to calculate carbon benefits.
  • Funding research to quantify blue carbon projects and co-benefits
  • Funding for blue carbon demonstration projects, and
  • Providing stronger protection for blue carbon ecosystems in planning frameworks
