Agroforestry by communities and smallholders
Communities are in the driving seat of all our projects. Via the Plan Vivo benefit-sharing mechanism, project participants receive 60% of the revenues of the carbon credits.
Each project builds on the specific ecosystem in the project region, as all planted trees are native or naturalised. Restoration of the ecosystem naturally enhances the biodiversity.
With our project interventions, we aim to remove as much atmospheric carbon as possible – with nature as our carbon pool.
Our Miombo project in Mozambique aims to pursue climate mitigation and adaptation strategies to remove a total of 288 t CO2e/ha over a project period of 30 years.
‘My fields are just downslope of the EthioTrees forest in Meam Atali. Before, the springs supplied groundwater only during the first months of the dry season. Since two years, the groundwater is recharging. Now, I can irrigate all year round.’Nugus Gebremariam, farmer in Meam Atali
Marine organisms rethrive
The restoration of mangroves in eastern Madagascar is not only beneficial to the local fishermen. Marine organisms, such as the mud crab Scylla serrata, can thrive again in the recovering community-managed mangroves.
