Understanding interactions between complex human and natural systems involved in urban carbon
cycling is important when balancing the dual goals of urban development to accommodate a growing
population, while also achieving urban carbon neutrality. This study develops a systems breakdown
accounting method to assess the urban carbon cycle. The method facilitates greater understanding of the
complex interactions within and between systems involved in this cycle, in order to identify ways in
which humans can adapt their interactions to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions from urban regions.
Testing the systems breakdown accounting method in Stockholm County, Sweden, we find that it
provides new insights into the carbon interactions with urban green-blue areas in the region. Results
show how Stockholm County can reduce its emissions and achieve its goal of local carbon net-neutrality,
if the green areas protect its carbon sequestration potential and maintain it to offset projected remaining
active emissions. Results also show that the inland surface waters and inner archipelago waters within
Stockholm County are a considerable source of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. A better
understanding of these water emissions is necessary to formulate effective planning and policy measures
that can reduce urban emissions. The insights gained from this study can also be applied in other regions.
In particular, water bodies could play a significant role in the urban carbon cycle and using this
knowledge for more complete carbon accounting, and a better understanding of green-blue interactions
could help to reduce net urban emissions in many places.
