With four modules divided into easy-to-follow units and loaded with sample forms, step-by-step instructions, and simple, meaningful visual aids, this is a new tool for rural development project managers looking to capture the value of carbon while improving landscape performance and farmer livelihoods.
The manual describes the steps for implementing an afforestation/reforestation voluntary carbon project based on the Plan Vivo Standard. It builds on experience gained by the Environmental Conservation Trust of Uganda (ECOTRUST), ENR Africa Associates, and EcoAgriculture Partners while undertaking a participatory action research project focusing on the institutional arrangements of smallholder agricultural carbon projects in Sub-Saharan Africa. This work was supported by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture, and Food Security (CCAFS).
