Wetland ecosystems as a nature-based solution for climate change adaptation and mitigation in Macao
This project focuses on wetland ecosystems as a nature-based solution for climate change adaptation and mitigation in Macao. It aims to investigate the specific roles of the local wetland ecosystems (coastal wetlands/mangroves and/or freshwater wetlands) in Macao for carbon sequestration, reduction of water-related risks (flooding due to impact of storm surge brought by more frequent severe weather events) and shoreline stabilization.

This projects aims to investigate ways in which nature-based solutions (NBS) can be applied to enhance the water quality and availability of coastal waters in Macao and take advantage of the ecosystems services that they provide.
