How it works

  • Farmers and communities that own small plots of land that have degraded are given financial support and technical guidance to begin replanting on their land.

  • Community members are hired to help with the task of replanting and maintaining the degraded lands.

  • Once replanted and matured, carbon will be sequestered promoting biodiversity and playing a role in supporting soil health.

  • Land that would have laid bare is now a source of livelihood, and any carbon revenue generated goes back to the participating farmers thus stimulating the local economy.
