Results


Expected results in area A:

  • Higher levels of carbon sequestering per ha at the end of the project as compared to the initial situation
  • Introduction of carbon credits from a certified natural forest to the market
  • A functioning forest & carbon management programme
  • An increase of biodiversity in the subareas where specific management actions were taken
  • Demonstrate that additional income can be generated by conserving and improving existing forests, a unique feat in Europe

Expected results in areas B and C:

  • Higher levels of carbon sequestering per ha at the end of the project as compared to the initial situation
  • Increase in the root surface per plant, allowing much better absorption of water and nutrients resulting in healthier and better producing plants
  • Successfully executed pre-assessment process for certification to obtain carbon credits
  • Generation of more net income for the land owner at the end of the project compared to the initial situation
  • Demonstration of the economic viability of integral agroforestry systems in relation to the needed investment
