Agriculture and deforestation are major contributors to climate change. However, agroforestry mitigates this by integrating trees into farms to sequester carbon while reducing emissions. Core Carbon Vanam is CCX’s pioneering ARR VCS (Afforestation, Reforestation, and Revegetation Verified Carbon Standard) agroforestry project that enables farmers to meaningfully combat climate change through avoiding deforestation, sequestering carbon and reducing on-farm emissions. Crucially, agroforestry also promotes sustainable rural livelihoods. By delivering environmental stability alongside productivity, agriculture can be part of the climate solution.

Sustainable Land Utilization, GHG Reduction and Rural Development

Our goal with this planned ARR VCS project is to empower small-scale farmers and foster sustainable agroforestry practices, creating a win-win scenario by enhancing financial prospects and facilitating GHG reduction. This initiative spans across the states of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, and Jharkhand, aiming to leave a lasting positive impact on the environment and local communities.

Project highlights include, but are not limited to, educating farmers and offering technical assistance with agroforestry practices;

  • Diverse Tree Plantation for Specific Regions: We mobilize farmers to plant a wide variety of tree species, ranging from fruit-bearing trees like Indian blackberry, Guava, and Mango to valuable timber species like Teak, Mahogany, and Sandalwood.
  • Simple Cultivation and Maintenance Techniques: Our selected small scale farmers employ simple yet effective tree cultivation techniques that involve planting saplings in pits with minimal land disturbance, ensuring successful growth and carbon sequestration.
  • Carbon Credit Solutions Guidance: We work with individual farmers in most of the districts in the above states and give them expert advice on how to use carbon credits as incentives. Farmers who grow trees on their lands to sequester carbon are eligible to earn carbon credits.

Agroforestry Benefits for Farmers, Environment and Investors

By integrating trees into farming landscapes, agroforestry unlocks a myriad of benefits for Farmers and the Environment:

  • Enhances land productivity through crop diversification and improved yields
  • Conserves biodiversity by enriching ecosystems
  • Improves soil health, water retention and nutrient cycling
  • Builds climate resilience through carbon sequestration, shade and windbreaks
  • Diversifies income with carbon credits, timber, fruits, nuts and medicinal products
  • Contributes to five sustainable development goals

Engaging the Community

We warmly welcome farmers, investors, and local communities to actively engage with our ARR VCS agroforestry project. Your participation advances a sustainable future, amplifies rural development, and supports carbon removal initiatives.

Rice farming and methane emissions

During rice farming, the fields are often flooded, creating an ideal environment for the decomposition of organic matter and the subsequent release of methane gas, a greenhouse gas 27 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Global rice production accounts for 8-12% of human generated methane.

Partnership to benefit the farmer community and the environment 

CoreCarbonX(CCX) and Vida Carbon Corp have collaborated on a project that would help the paddy farmer community implement improved water management systems in 100,000 hectares of rice fields in Telangana. 

Farmers in Telangana have no financial incentive to conserve water or energy because both are fully subsidised. CCX plans to address this issue by providing farmers with education on “alternative wetting and drying” techniques. This method of farming makes use of a gauge to show exactly how much water is in various parts of the field. With this equipment, farmers can control the water supply to their crops precisely. Reduced methane emissions can be achieved by limiting the length of time that rice fields are submerged in water. The rate of decomposition of organic material and, consequently, methane emissions will be reduced when rice fields are flooded for shorter periods of time.

Farmers economic gain from carbon credits and other co-benefits

Farmers who take part will reap financial rewards from the project’s success through a share of the money made from selling carbon credits.

Benefits such as these are gained in addition to the accomplishment of six SDGs set by the United Nations:

  • Methane Reduction up-to 50%
  • Reduced water consumption by 15%-25%.
  • Increases in Farmer’s Profits.
  • Promote better collaboration between entrepreneurs.
  • Water pump fuel and energy consumption will be reduced.

Approximately 70 percent of Afghanistan’s total power capacity of 1450 W is imported from the neighbouring countries. The country has limited indigenous sources of electricity. Afghanistan can greatly benefit from making the transition from non renewable energy to relying on renewable energy especially Solar energy.

Under this engagement, Core CarbonX has evaluated solar energy potential from rooftops in the city of Kabul. The study has also evaluated the carbon revenue potential from solar rooftop projects in Afghanistan. 300 Sunny days in a year with abundant free Solar irradiation to generate solar power and strong support from Government makes the country an attractive destination for setting up photovoltaic solar power projects.

Improving Lives:

The contribution of solar energy towards climate change mitigation and environmental stewardships were evaluated and showcased by associated carbon revenue that can help in bringing in potential external finance in the renewable energy sector in Afghanistan. Solar rooftop and grid-connected net-metering projects are encouraged and recommended due to the potential benefits of rooftop area, energy security, and generating clean and green energy.

We are working with various governments to fight climate change. Join us.

The project activity helps in estimation of carbon stock present in mangrove forest of Kakinada, East Godavari, Andhra Pradesh.

Carbon Stock Estimation:

A large fraction of the mangroves in India was destroyed due to aquaculture and agriculture expansion.

The project activity was initiated to find out the overall carbon present in Kakinada mangrove area. The study was conducted in Kakinada mangrove forest and the samples were collected from Coringa wildlife sanctuary. The study area map was carried out with the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) values of Kakinada forest which shows the high degradation of mangrove in the southeast area on the Kakinada bay and adjacent with a marshy wetland situated at 16.9162N and 82.2027E, 17.0373N and 82.2917E.with the center of 16.9890N and 82.2774E.

The area was mapped with the GIS and the study research was carried out with the help of a mobile application. The study estimated the above level biomass and below level biomass and calculated the total carbon stock present in the Coringa Wildlife Sanctuary.

The project also involved the assessment of livelihood opportunities for fishermen community.

We work with various governments on Carbon Stock assessment to restore Mangroves. Join us.

Paddy fields are the most dominant anthropogenic sources of methane to the atmosphere (5-20% of the total emission from all anthropogenic sources).

Anaerobic decomposition of organic material in flooded rice fields produces methane, which escapes to the atmosphere primarily by transport through the rice plants.

Water Management and Reduction in CH4 emissions:

Core CarbonX (CCX) is working together with farmers in reducing the methane emissions from Paddy fields. CCX has already implemented a project on 1800 acres of land in the Nalgonda district in Telangana State, India.

The project promotes the Alternate Wetting and Drying (AWD) method that helps water management in the rice field, thereby, increasing the yield of the paddy and reducing methane emissions. In addition, this project benefits the farmers by supporting additional revenue from the carbon market for sustainable rice cultivation.

We are working with various state governments, institutions, NGOs and farmers. Our aim is to implement the AWD method in paddy fields totalling 1 million hectares by 2025.

Energy efficient cookstoves in the Republic of Myanmar help families live better lives: less pollution, as well as augment incomes.

Families in Myanmar used traditional methods – either open fire or three-stone method for cooking. These were fairly inefficient at converting energy into heat for cooking. Fuel is wasted, as heat is allowed to escape into the open air. These are unhealthy too; they cause diseases like bronchitis and pneumonia.

Enhancing the Quality of Life for 30,000 Households

CCX has successfully distributed Improved Cook Stoves (ICS) to approximately 30,000 households in Myanmar. The ICS has been specifically designed to provide an enclosure for the fire, effectively reducing the loss of radiant heat, protecting it against wind, and ultimately increasing heat transfer. This design greatly enhances the efficiency of the cookstove.

Economic Advancement

While it also meant faster cooking, the cookstoves helped save time and fuel, cleaner pans, kitchen walls and health expenditure. Carbon credits also augmented the income of these families leading to economic advancement

We are working with other governments to widen the usage of improved cookstoves (ICS). Join us.

Seepage of Solid Waste into underlying soil and water, contaminates both. This waste rots and decomposes, and produces harmful greenhouse gases (CO2 & Methane) contributing to global warming. Land filling of solid waste is the most practiced method worldwide resulting in landfill pollution and has wider effects on human health as well as on Environment. Methane that is generated due to solid waste is the leading cause of fires at landfills, resulting in garbage burning and air pollution.

 

To overcome Landfill pollution, Rourkela Municipal Corporation, Orissa engaged CCX team for below:

  • Evaluation of landfill facility for Disposal of Municipal Solid Waste and Detailed Project Report (DPR) on Landfill waste management.
  • BID process management for Construction of Scientific Sanitary Landfill Site.
  • Process Management for Bioremediation of existing Dumping site. 

*A Scientific Landfill minimizes the risk of waste-generated pollutants seeping underground and reduces the generation of methane that can light up the garbage.
This reduces the risk of environmental or health hazards tremendously.*

CCX team has been working with many state government agencies across India on such environmental sustainable programs. Join us.
