Summary

Pay community men and women to plant 30,000 trees (65 species) in biological corridors covering water springs and rivers in Guabo Valley watershed near Pacific ocean. All farms owned by Costa Ricans. Build sustainable businesses like production of fertile soil, production of trees, sustainable eco-tourism and forest management practices promoting long term rainforest conservation. Combat climate change thru permanent capture 30,000 tons of CO2. Excess water vapor transpiration. Repair soils.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Earth's atmosphere and oceans are heating up due to excess carbon dioxide. Hydrological cycles (rain/snow/drought) are broken due to excess water vapor. Biodiverse species of flora and fauna are threatened with extinction due to deforestation and conversion of land to unsustainable uses. Soils are dying. Rivers and water springs are drying up. Poor people living with rainforest lack sustainable ways to conserve it. Communities, especially women suffer from lack of sustainable work opportunities.

How will this project solve this problem?

Pay Costa Rican men and women to produce, plant and maintain native trees in biological corridors on their own farms. Take pressure off logging rainforest by creating sustainable interdependent business. Max offset CO2 and transpiration excess water vapor to combat climate change. Reforestation in critical watershed reduces ocean acidification through erosion control and lower temperatures. Produce sustainable organic food and forest products. Preserve water, diverse species flora and fauna.

Potential Long Term Impact

Remove 30,000 tons of CO2 from atmosphere. Conserve water. Preserve rainforest flora fauna. Create sustainable business 44 women to produce fertile soil, organic fertilizers and pesticides. Create long term income for more than 50 Costa Ricans producing, planting and maintaining trees around rivers and streams of their own deforested farms in wildlife corridors. Guabo Valley (50,000 hects.) participates in sustainable forest management through 30 year commitment. Eco-tourism education.
