Maximizing Carbon Storage and Climate Resiliency in Wetland Restoration and Creation: An Innovative Approach, and Why it Matters

The Global Development and Environment Institute at Tufts University in collaboration with Tufts University Institute of the Environment and the Center for International Environment & Resource Policy presents a lecture by Gillian Davies, a GDAE Visiting Scholar and a Senior Ecological Scientist at BSC Group, Inc. Davies recently completed a 3-year term on the Executive Board of the International Society of Wetland Scientists, where she served as the 2016-2017 President. A focus of her work is the intersection of wetlands and climate change.

Wetlands occupy 5–8 % of the earth’s land surface yet store 30% of the world’s soil carbon. What is all this talk about “Drain the Swamp!”? Find out why that is exactly what we don’t want to do if we want to reverse climate change, promote resiliency to climate impacts and develop innovative approaches to wetland restoration and creation that conserve soil carbon, promote climate resiliency, improve ecological function, and save money.
