Their combined annual sequestration potential istons of carbon dioxide (tCO2), worth $, at. This paper looks at the potential for community forestry projects in India to sell carbon sequestration credits1 on voluntary carbon markets. Ever since the ratification of the Kyoto Protocol2 inthere has been an expectation that forestry projects in developing countries could improve local incomes by selling.

Community forestry is an evolving branch of forestry whereby the local community plays a significant role in forest management and land use decision making by themselves in the facilitating support of government as well as change agents. It involves the participation and collaboration of various stakeholders including community, government and non-governmental.

However, leakage is not unique to forest carbon projects and accounting for it in non-forest projects appears to be of limited concern. 05 jica assisted forestry projects in india Photo: A small isolated hamlet situated near the Dhanana distributary in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan.

It is important to note that these projects and the resultant offsets are only a part of a long set of solutions that the international community is considering to address climate change.

We also explain why in spite of the surge in international carbon markets, actual trading in forestry carbon offsets remains low. These included three carbon forestry projects in Uganda (a World Bank supported CDM project and the first registered in Africa, a commercially operated voluntary project and an NGO led project) and three bioenergy projects in Karnataka, India (including two NGO run household biogas projects and a commercial community biomass electricity.

Forest carbon projects generate carbon credits through the application of innovative forest management practices and/or by restoring degraded land, often while also enhancing other ecosystem benefits. The resulting credits can be retained by the landowner and used on an annual basis to offset an emission liability, or sold.

that may lead to multiple social and economic benefits. Forest carbon projects also expand the range of international participation in the carbon market in places such as Africa where CO2 reduction opportunities are very limited due to low levels of fossil fuel use.

Markets for forestry projects internationally are very modest.

Bringing Forest Carbon Projects to the Market 7 Executive Summary The objective of the Guidebook entitled “Bringing Forest Carbon Projects to the Market,” is to instruct project developers and financial investors on how to develop and implement profitable Linking community forestry projects in India with international carbon markets book projects in the carbon markets.

Regression analysis resulted in two equations for predicting total carbon storage based on height and diameter of trees up to 20 cm dbh: Y = (dbh2) for root carbon storage, and Y. Myanmar’s ‘first generation’ of community forestry pioneers.

Carbon emissions trading is a form of emissions trading that specifically targets carbon dioxide (calculated in tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent or tCO 2) and it currently constitutes the bulk of emissions trading.

This form of permit trading is a common method countries utilize in order to meet their obligations specified by the Kyoto Protocol; namely the reduction of carbon.

Increasing awareness of the need for action on global warming has produced a search for ways to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and to sequester carbon to offset such emissions.

To understand the methodological issues of developing community forestry projects, a case study was conducted in Mancherial forest division of Adilabad district in Andhra Pradesh, India.
