Agroforestry in India

India

Carbon Removal

Afforestation, Reforestation and Nature preservation

The project facilitates climate change mitigation and adaptation, maintains soil health, and creates alternative livelihoods. By diversifying 500k hectares of existing farmland, the project captures more than 700k tons of CO₂ annually and builds a sustainable farming model for generations to come.

Agroforestry in India

About the project

The three objectives of this agroforestry project in India are to make the soil healthier, increase climate change resistance, and provide new revenue streams. The initiative will keep an average of more than 700,000 tons of CO₂ each year by modifying the usage of 500,000 hectares of current agricultural land. It can create a sustainable agricultural paradigm in this way for future generations.

By utilising the land in a novel way, the agroforestry initiative offers agriculture a fresh boost. The various climate zones of Northern India historically support a wide variety of tree species. Between the farming plots, local farmers will plant a mixture of native and non-native trees. An increase in above- and below-ground biomass as well as organic carbon in the soil help to absorb CO₂. This not only protects the soil's health but also the absorption of CO₂ from the environment. Farmers also benefit from increased crops and carbon income. The project area has 3,287 settlements. Local self-help organizations, or self-help groups (SHGs) are being formed in order to achieve complete consensus and guarantee active collaboration with all parties. To guarantee proper planting and equitable sharing of the harvest, they are made up of local representatives and forest workers. Additionally, the initiative offers financial stability for all community members while they work for equality and equal opportunity through the creation of SHGs, in which the majority of participants are women. Due to the high impact on different levels, the project can serve as a role model for India, helping the country move towards climate-smart agricultural practices with greater climate resilience in the coming decades.
