Ede, the Netherlands - Wetlands International welcomes the approval of the new carbon trading category “Wetlands Restoration and Conservation” (WRC) by the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS). The new category provides a strong incentive for private investment in conservation and restoration of carbon rich wetlands.
The Verified Carbon Standard’s new carbon trading category enables the measuring and crediting of climate benefits from a broad range of wetlands, including mangroves, freshwater tidal coastal wetlands, salt marshes, seagrasses, floodplains, peatlands, and other wetland types. The creation of this new category opens the door to increased private investment in wetland restoration and conservation projects through the issuance of internationally recognised carbon credits.
