The scoping study will provide an industry lens to sizing ocean-carbon markets and opportunities for the Blue Economy CRC via desktop studies and key stakeholder interviews and surveys.
It will reference the research and carbon methodologies work being progressing by others. This is a first phase of a strategic assessment of ocean-carbon markets in Australia and New Zealand, that will help the Blue Economy CRC define its role in addressing barriers and enabling its members, partners and investors to participate in ocean carbon project development opportunities.
The reports produced from this study will provide synthesised information not currently available in the public domain. It is intended for a broad audience, helpful to describe an evolving opportunity with a variety of opinion and high level of complexity, as well as identification of active and potential participants/stakeholders and their involvement. This is intended to support stakeholders to navigate near and longer-term decision making and participation.
This study will not include developing carbon methodology or scientific research and may describe gaps and development opportunities that are hindering progressing ocean-based carbon markets.
