Case Study: Trees for Global Benefit Program: Environmental Conservation Trust (ECOTRUST) of Uganda
The Trees for Global Benefits project was designed as a cooperative community-based carbon offset scheme with livelihood components emphasizing sustainable land-use practices. The aim of the project is to produce long-term, verifiable Voluntary Emission Reductions (VERs) by combining carbon sequestration with rural livelihood improvements through small-scale, farmer led, forestry/agroforestry projects while reducing pressure on natural resources in national parks and forest reserves
