Full project name: Carbono Rural
Location: Chaco Boreal – Paraguay
Impact on region/communities:
This highly scalable program consists of farmlands across the Paraguayan Chaco that will apply rational cattle raising and improved grassland management. The project will increase carbon capture in the soil (removal), reduce GHG emissions and increase the biodiversity of native vegetation and endangered species, through rotation on grasslands and restoration and enrichment of degraded pastures.
Carbon standard/verification: Verified Carbon Standard (VCS)
Size/scale: 400,000 hectares of farmland (potential expansion of project area)
CO2e to be removed: 11,000,000 (tCO2e total)
Timescale: 20 years
