Blue Carbon and the mitigation of Climate Change
Blue Carbon – is the carbon stored in marine and coastal ecosystems, from phytoplankton to fish and whales. It is one of the most effective natural tools that Cabo Verde has to mitigate climate change on the global level. For these ecosystems to do their job we need to keep them healthy and resilient.

Climate change and plastic pollution
One of the main causes of climate change is the increase in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. The gases absorb some of the radiation that would otherwise be radiated, keeping the planet warm. Impacts include: sea level rise, reduced agricultural or fisheries production, species extinction, droughts or storms. In Cabo Verde we do not have large industries or high carbon dioxide emissions in the transport sector, but... we have large amounts of plastic products that result in plastic waste!
