Wetlands play an important role in regulating the global climate by sequestering significant amounts of carbon. However, when these are degraded, drained or burned for production, they become carbon source, releasing centuries of stored CO2 into the atmosphere. Preserving, sustainably managing, and restoring wetlands is critical to ensuring this essential benefit.
Join for a knowledge exchange on carbon in wetlands in different countries of Latin America and the Caribbean.
