In a speech to the National Assembly on 28 October 2020, South Korean President Moon Jae-in announced that South Korea would become carbon neutral by 2050. Since then, how to achieve carbon neutrality has become a common topic of discussion among Korean scholars. This paper focuses on the policies related to the construction of blue carbon ecosystems in China. Through a review of the main contents of China’s policies, the focus of policy formulation and development direction is collated. It is ultimately proposed that in the process of developing a blue carbon ecosystem. Korea needs to pay attention to the development and utilisation of mudflat resources as the mainstay of the blue carbon ecosystem, and to carry out regional pilot projects on carbon sinks in marine ecosystems in line with Korea’s local context. As to lay a solid foundation for Korea to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 in the future.
