Reduced deforestation and degradation
In the Nicaforest High Impact Reforestation Program we have in our Pilot planted approximately 360.000 trees in 4 different farms: Amelia farm, Santa Elena farm, Rosario de Fatima farm and Santa Maria farm.
The total Emission Reduction for end of 2018 of the original area (4 farms in pilot) the already sequestered volume (ex Post) is 45.624 tCO2-e and 32.460 tCO2-e are estimated future sequestering (Ex Ante).
Natural Forests and Bio-diversity protected
Since we are planting on deforested land only, approximately 25-30% of the farms areas are conservation areas where natural forests are left protected. This enhance bio-diversity and wildlife.
In most farms there will be rivers and creeks. Rivers and creeks are very important for both bio- diversity and soil preservance. In order to avoid any disturbances all harvesting is avoided less than 100 meters on each side of the river and the creek. This will protect the natural growth close to waterways and avoid any negative effect from the planting activities.
Boardering to REDD+ zones
The Nicaforest High Impact Reforestation Program is boardering prioritized REDD+ zone by Nicaraguan Government and Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF);
