Game Changer: Capture Carbon Through Nature-Based Sequestration

Cities can play a role in accelerating the implementation of nature-based carbon removal strategies that simultaneously improve the social, economic, and environmental resilience of local communities. Actions that utilize natural biological processes and systems to drawdown carbon from the atmosphere can be taken by land and by water.

  • Land-based drawdown — actions include land management treatments such as compost, biochar or other soil enhancement techniques.

  • Ocean/aquatic drawdown — actions include ocean farming, wetland management, and other systems that use the unique characteristics of water dominated ecosystems.
