Cambodia: Case Study on Community REDD+ Project in Oddar Meanchey Province
Community Forestry International (CFI), in partnership with Terra Global Capital (TGC), recently published a case study describing experiences emerging from the design and carbon development of one of the world’s first community-based REDD+ projects in Oddar Meanchey Province, Cambodia.
This 67,783 hectare project involves 13 community forestry groups comprised of 58 villages. The project is expected to sequester 7.1 million metric tons of CO2 over thirty years, reducing poverty among ten thousand participating households. The project methodology and design are seeking validation under the Voluntary Carbon Standard (VCS) and the Climate Community and Biodiversity Alliance (CCBA ) standards.
The project is being formulated by The Royal Government of Cambodia, in collaboration with Community Forestry International who identified and designed the project and Terra Global Capital as the carbon developer. The 80 page case study describes the REDD+ project goals and context, strategy, design process, carbon calculations, financing arrangements, risk, and long term prospects.
The case study, "Designing Collaborative REDD Projects: A Case Study from Oddar Meanchey Province, Cambodia" is available in PDF format at the Community Forestry International website here.
The first draft of the VCS REDD methodology, "Baseline and Monitoring Methodology for Project Activities that Reduce Emissions from Deforestation on Degrading Land" can be found here.
A complementary case study on the same project, "Communities & Carbon: Establishing a Community Forestry-REDD Project in Cambodia" has been published by PACT and is available here.
