What does the project do?
Trees are planted on land owned by the community in Limay. Each new wooded area is owned by an individual family. They are paid as the work gets done over time. These ecosystem payments result in CO2 being taken out of the atmosphere and locked into the growing trees. The wood lot is maintained so as to retain the carbon, but also to provide new resources for the families.
What happens without it?
Limay has suffered from deforestation and from droughts and ﬂoods. Families are poor and young people leave the community to ﬁnd work and opportunities elsewhere.
What are you funding?
The planting of trees by individual producers.
