Blue carbon ecosystems and sustainable development (BLUES)
With the project BLUES, I contribute to the discussion of alternative welfare measures and on the use of the inclusive wealth (IW) framework for assessing sustainable development. In particular, I discuss and explore conceptually the prospects and limitations of using IW for assessing ocean wealth and sustainable oceanic development. Moreover, I apply the concept of IW to assess the contribution of coastal blue carbon ecosystems to overall wealth and sustainable development on a global level.
