Project Design Document submitted!

After two years of hard work by Jorge Ramos, Alex Sarmento and the GTNT field staff in Laclubar, the Project Design Document (PDD) has just been submitted to Plan Vivo Foundation for carbon accreditation assessment. If you are wondering what goes into a PDD, here is a list of information required (in case your project is considering carbon credits!). Beware, it is not for the faint hearted! Sound carbon modelling is required based on thorough on-ground assessment. And this is just the beginning…..if the project is approved by PV, the next step will be third party auditing and verification. Only after passing the audit, can credits be issued and carbon buyers approached. Watch this space as we continue the journey towards carbon farming for Timor Leste!
