Full title: The Polar Ocean Mitigation Potential

Funding: Horizon Europe (call HORIZON-CL6-2023-CLIMATE-01-3: Ocean and coastal waters carbon- and biodiversity-rich ecosystems and habitats in Europe and the Polar Regions).

Project goal:

The Polar Ocean Mitigation Potential (POMP) project aims to increase scientific knowledge on how climate change will impact polar biodiversity and the capacity of these habitats to uptake CO2, thereby highlighting their significance in climate change mitigation. Over the next four years, the 16 partners in POMP will address knowledge gaps in Polar Blue Carbon habitats and produce outputs with direct implications for the future management of the Polar Oceans. Ultimately, results will be synthesized into input for policy makers and managers to facilitate the adaptation and resilience of natural marine ecosystems with increasing climate change.
