Cabon Methodology Development for Upper Tana-Nairobi Water Fund Trust, Kenya
The Upper Tana-Nairobi Water Fund Trust (UTNWFT) works with more than 50,000 smallholder farmers who own individual parcels of land to undertake carbon sequestration interventions on their farms by implementing agroforestry and sustainable land management activities. To provide a source of finance for their activities UTNWFT has developed a Plan Vivo project to generate carbon certificates for additional sequestration of carbon in trees and soils as a result of their activities.
TLLG worked with UTNWFT to develop a carbon accounting methodology and estimates of expected carbon benefits for five agroforestry interventions, implemented in the Upper Tana Watershed and provided input to the Plan Vivo Certified Project Design Document.
