Guide to Carbon Farming With Us
The purpose of this guide is to help our project partners with the design and implementation of Carbon Offset Programs (COP). Carbon offsets are projects that carry out on-the-ground emissions reduction activities. Projects such as tree planting and farming can be incorporated into carbon-offset programs with good guidance and planning. The carbon is typically measured in metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents. The carbon can be traded on the voluntary markets, where investors and carbon traders, as part of a compliance market, where government regulations require emitters to either reduce their carbon emissions or purchase carbon offsets. NET Africa will require all its partners to follow the rules and procedures set out by a voluntary carbon standard such as the Gold Standard.
Who is the Guide for?
This Guide is aimed at the key participants in the NET Africa carbon program. These participants include the investors and landowners of carbon services. This may also include scientists, regulators, and planners. The Guide is divided into three parts:
Part 1: introduces the Carbon Program, including the key principles and concepts, which underpin carbon program development.
Part 2: provides more detailed, step-by-step advice for those designing and implementing Carbon Program; and
Part 3: points readers in the direction of further information and resources. Part 3 is followed by a glossary of key terms.
