CEDAC - Building carbon-trading business capacity for organized smallholder farmers in Cambodia/Cambodian Farmland Carbon (CAFACA)

  • Published on September 22, 2014
The project builds on the existing organizations of smallholder farmers. It will assist their organizations in implementing climate change mitigating activities and in acquiring capacity to act on regional and global markets for carbon
Organized smallholder farmers have achieved sustained capacity to trade carbon from climate-positive agricultural activities on voluntary markets and share the benefits equitably. The project builds on the existing organizations of smallholder farmers. It will assist their organizations in implementing climate change mitigating activities and in acquiring capacity to act on regional and global markets for carbon. Specifically it will: a) build capacity in organising project activities and preparing project proposals for the carbon markets, b) build capacity to conduct MVR, c) support planting of trees in agricultural landscapes, where issues of ownership, user rights and management are clarified and ensure sustainability. The tree-planting will constitute the first carbon project. d) Support pilot activities on biogas-fuelled electricity generation and bio-char, e) build capacity in other possible aspects of carbon-financing to sustainable agricultural practices by smallholder farmers. Anticipated results: 1) Improved income of participating farming families, 2) Very significant sequestration of carbon, 3) A sustainable business linking smallholders to (voluntary) carbon markets 4), testing of additional and potentially carbon-positive, agricultural and rural technologies, 5) Application of modern MVR technology that builds confidence and simplify MVR. Progress of implementation of action plan in building resilient communities.
