PROJECT TYPE β€” Reforestation
Planting new trees to improve the land and support farmers and tribal communities in India
by Forests Alive

This project is helping to repair damaged and degraded land in India. Having previously been wasteland, the work required to turn the area into an oasis again required a lot of work. The land is owned by different local farmers, tribes and communities. However, being a rather poor region, meant these people don't have the capacity without external support.Not only does this project help to bring back biodiversity in the region and reduction atmospheric carbon emissions. But also helps to support poorer communities to cultivate the tree planting themselves and have healthier and happier lives.

PROJECT TYPE β€” Afforestation + Reforestation
Planting trees to bring back native habitat and biodiversity in Western Australia
by Forests Alive

Europen settlers cleared vast amounts of land to make way for agriculture. One badly affected area in particular is located in Southwestern Australian, called the northern wheatbelt approximately 400km north of Perth. This project aims to bring back trees and shrub over a 10,000 square kilometre to create space for nautral Australian plants and animals to thrive once again in the region. This project also has massive carbon emission sequestering benefits.

PROJECT TYPE β€” HYDRO
Water to energy in hydro-electric project in Costa Rica
by Forests Alive

This hydroelectric power plant is generates power for Costa Ricas main power grid and contributes to the country's sustainability goals and environmental targets. The project has helped to support many local communities in the area with both energy and job creation.

PROJECT TYPE β€” WIND
Rice husk and sugar cane to power generation in India
by Forests Alive

This project turns organic waste products that would other wise go to landfill, which would break down and create methane gas which is 23x more potent than carbon alone with regards to contributing to atmospheric emissions. The rice husks, nuts and other burnable produce are used to heat generate heat, create steam from water and turn turbines that generate energy. It is also independent of from the main power grid and supports local communities with energy and work.

PROJECT TYPE β€” WIND
Renewable energy generation from wind farm in Mongolia
by Forests Alive

The goal of this project is to reduce green house gas emissions of the main power grid in Mongolia by producing clean wind generated energy. It will save an estimated ~200,000 tonnes of CO2e annually. This project has also been developed to help create jobs for the region and introduce renewables to the countries.

PROJECT TYPE β€” WIND
Micro wind farm produces renewable energy for the grid in India
by Forests Alive

Wind generated power from a handful of turbines in India. This project mitigates GHG emissions that would have otherwise been produced by coal and other non-renewable means of power generation for the grid.

πŸ’Ό Social β†’ job creation
πŸš₯ Technology β†’ growth

PROJECT TYPE β€” BIOMASS ENERGY + WASTE/LANDFILL
Using rice husks to generate electricity in Cambodia
by Forests Alive

By using rice husks to power electricity generators in Cambodia, this project mitigates carbon emissions from not using diesel oil. The power generated particularly powers a rice mill and any surplus energy is provided to the local grid.

Reforestation and Protection of Tasmanian Native Forest
by Forests Alive

This project has helped and continues to Β avoid 280,000 tCO2e of emissions each year. This is the equivalent of 59,448 cars not being each year. There are thirteen landowners who collectively protect 36,000 hectares of native forest from logging activities and undertake afforestation.
The project also protects native wildlife, ecology and creates ecotourism.

Converting chicken litter into renewable electricity in India
by IOT Mabagas

This Gold Standard certified waste-to-energy project converts up to 120,000 tons/year of chicken litter and bio products into renewable electricity, which is able to be used by South Indian locals. Besides the avoidance of methane emissions from waste chicken manure, the typically carbon intensive electricity generation is mitigated with renewable sources and as a bonus solves hygienic problems in the region as well.
