Yokohama Blue Carbon

City Lead: Yokohama
Year Completed: 2019

The City of Yokohama and their partners pioneered a study on “urban blue carbon,” in order to propose an internationally applicable method to accurately estimate the carbon reduction effect in the urban coastal line. This field study is conducted in Kanazawa Bay, Yokohama’s coastal area, to measure the carbon absorption and fixation volume of seaweed.
