The CTCN brings together stakeholders who want to leverage ecosystem services from lakes, rivers, oceans and coastal zones to capture carbon emissions, also commonly referred to as Blue Carbon. A key approach is to adapt coastal zones to climatic changes through technologies such as wetland restoration, beach nourishment and a combination of other well-established and innovative technologies. Browse through our Coastal Zone pages to see how you can connect with our growing network of organisations and businesses. Below you will find related publications, partners, CTCN technical assistance, technologies and other information for exploring this topic further.

Coral reefs are central to the economy and livelihoods of Palau while providing risk reduction benefits. However, climate change is posing a serious threat to the survival of corals. Rise in sea surface temperature and ocean acidification as a result of climate change is causing more frequent and severe coral bleaching events. Future projections also indicate that widespread coral bleaching will occur annually in Palau’s coral reefs by 2040.

The coastal zone is one of the nation's greatest environmental and economic assets of Liberia. However, the evolution of coastline variations is considered as one of the most dynamic processes affecting this area. Liberia has initiated its Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) in 2019. Integrated Coastal Zone Management has been identified as one of the three and the most important technologies priorities for the country along with Flood Early Warning System and Armour or Rock Revetment.
