Abstract— The impact of global climate change has been a particular concern of the world community and nations, including Indonesia. As an archipelagic country that has a wide range of natural resources and high biodiversity, Indonesia has great potential to be adversely affected by climate change and also has great potential to contribute in its mitigation and adaptation to its negative impacts. The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) sets out several targets for reducing Green House Gas (GHG) emissions in the context of climate change mitigation. Blue carbon in Indonesia is stored in the marine environment and has great potential as an absorber or hoarder of carbon dioxide that can reduce GHG emissions. Indonesia's coastal and marine areas have the potential to absorb approximately 138 million tonnes of carbon equivalent per year or five times more than the potential absorption of tropical forest ecosystems in Indonesia. The carbon sequestration potential can reduce 25% of global carbon emissions. The amount of carbon storage shows that the ocean can play an important role in climate change mitigation. However, the complexity of blue carbon management and its implementation capacity still requires in-depth study. The analysis in this paper uses a form of normative legal research, which is done by analyzing related laws and regulations, using a problem statute approach and conceptual approach. Legal construction in the management of blue carbon is required as a form of protection of the marine environment as a climate balancer.
