At Climate Impact Partners, we connect sustainability professionals and subsistence farmers around the world by developing new carbon projects through the voluntary carbon market.
The latest opportunity that we are bringing to companies is a large-scale tree planting project in Panna, India designed for long-term community benefit and water conservation, as well as high integrity nature-based carbon removals. Planting has started and includes fruit trees (mango, guava), furniture hardwood trees (teak), medicinal trees (neem) and many other native species.
Details of the Panna Afforestation Project in India:
This new community-based afforestation project in Madhya Pradesh, India offers companies the chance to secure more than two million tonnes of verified nature-based carbon removal credits over the next 25 years. Working with a local tree planting expert, that has 20 years’ experience working with communities in India’s tribal belt, more than 11 million native trees will be planted over 20,000 hectares of private farmer and community lands. New sources of income will be created through fruit trees, and new jobs created through nurseries and project implementation and monitoring.
Over the last 18 months, we have worked on project feasibility using the latest digital and remote monitoring technology to carry out detailed risk assessments. We have invested in the first year of activities, including planting up to 600,000 trees by October 2023. Companies looking to secure large volumes of high-quality carbon removals have been invited to apply to fund the scale-up of the project and maximize its impact.
The project delivers significant impact across multiple UN Sustainable Development Goals, including: No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Gender Equality, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Climate Action, and Life on Land.
