Reducing degradation and improving farming conditions

● This flagship soil carbon project is the world’s largest, covering over 2 million hectares of community managed rangeland

● Started in 2013, the project involves the introduction of community conservancies that employ planned rotational grazing. This materially reduces the degradation and over grazing typical in the region and results in improved conditions for soil and grass to regenerate

● The project has been conducted in partnership with Native Energy (the project developer), Northern Rangelands Trust (project implementation) and The Nature Conservancy who provided early-stage funding and ongoing technical support

● The project is expected to remove more than 50mt of CO2e from the atmosphere over its 30-year lifetime

● The project completed its first verification of more than 3mt CO2e in late 2020

● The project is unusual in delivering carbon removals (rather than avoidance) credits but with the strong co-benefits typically associated with an avoidance (REDD+) project. It has received “Triple Gold” status under the Climate, Community, and Biodiversity Alliance (CCBA)

The following Sustainable Development Goals are being pursued with this project:
