Did you know that the farming families of the Peruvian Sierra have become the protagonists of their future?
They have sown prosperity through 11 million trees, that is, 11,000 hectares of forest plantations, which improve the climate, reverse soil degradation, provide shelter for animals, reduce pressure on natural forests and capture large amounts of pollutants, CO2.
Their contribution to climate change mitigation, to the resilience of their environment and to the sustainable development of their region is unquestionable.
As these trees grow and reach their climax, they are capturing CO2, and can become an economic opportunity for them, through Carbon Credits.
That is why in June 2021, thanks to your contributions, we have initiated the study of the Carbon Credits market, we want it to be a Bio-business, fair and sustainable trade.
How have we moved forward?
We established a strategic alliance with AIDER, to support us and grow together with this new experience in Cusco.
In July, we visited several communities and in the plantations, we measured the trees, their height, their diameter, we observed their phytosanitary condition, we checked the soil where they grow. As the trunk of the tree grows, it captures CO2, and that is part of what we want to know.
A very important aspect of the visits has been the participation in meetings with the community boards, getting to know their expectations, their strengths and weaknesses.
Now we are starting measurements in other plantations and waiting for the results of this field study.
As time goes by, these trees continue to grow and give the planet and humanity hope and the opportunity to breathe cleaner and purer air.
The entire Pachamama Raymi team is very excited about this project, we expect great results.
We will continue Sowing Prosperity with the protagonists of change, the Peasant Families of the Peruvian Sierra.
