At a Glance
  • Supports 12,002 farmers covering 14,969 hectares of land
  • A source of livelihood and income for local communities
Projects Benefits
  • Increases forest cover which is a key method of sequestering carbon
  • Reduces top soil degradation from wind and water erosion
  • Conserves biodiversity promoting soil health
  • Supports local job creation to maintain and run projects and silviculture
  • Carbon revenues generated through the project will be shared with participating farmers
About reforestation
These projects protect and restore forests which sequester carbon and help biodiversity to thrive. One mature tree in a forest sequesters around ~20kg of carbon every year.
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.

Proof of Carbon Accounting
To ensure transparency, Green Story Carbon Registry tracks issuance and retirement of carbon credits for all projects on the Green Story offset platform.
