    The Joint SedNet-Navigating a Changing Climate Workshop, held on February 10th-11th, 2021, focused on sediment management’s significance in addressing climate change challenges. The outcomes highlighted the role of sediments as carbon sinks, aiding in greenhouse gas mitigation. Proper sediment management in coastal areas can enhance carbon storage, reduce emissions, and bolster coastal resilience against erosion while promoting ecosystem health. The workshop emphasized the importance of recognizing and implementing sustainable sediment management strategies to harness their potential for climate change mitigation and create more resilient environments.
