BlueS contributes to the discussion about using the inclusive wealth (IW) framework for sustainability assessments. In particular, we discuss and explore conceptually the prospects and limitations of using IW for assessing ocean wealth and sustainable oceanic development. Moreover, we apply the concept of IW to assess the contribution of coastal blue carbon ecosystems to overall wealth and sustainable development on a global level.
