15.11.2012 By: Transfer LBC

Forestry Service Group, la Fundació Catalunya La Pedrera and Transfer initiated the the preliminary analysis of the terrain of Alinyà Mountain (Catalunya). The land consists of approximately 4,500 ha, with the same characteristics of pre-Pyrenees areas. The area presents a major opportunity for combating climate change and obtaining carbon credits.






During the identification process of the area, several interviews were conducted with local residents, farmers and ranchers living in Fígols i Alinyà. Moreover, meetings were organized with various agricultural, enviromental and forestry organizations of the department of Alt Urgell (Lleida). The results of these analyses were used to develop a forest management plan that could increase carbon sequestration in the area.
