Fridays for Climate | Sustainable reforestation activities of farmers in Timor Leste šŸŒ“

šŸŒ In Timor Leste, an EU GCCA+ project was launched to establish economic incentives for farmers undertaking meaningful climate change action at their own level, including sustainable reforestation activities. Through this system, every tree planted in certiļ¬ed areas of reforestation counts for the purpose of carbon sequestration.

After an initial screening, interested forestry groups receive technical training and follow-up, allowing them to understand the climate change activity and the functioning of carbon credits. šŸŒ“ Supporting such initiatives may imply changes of habits in rural communities and include new activities in the local economy.
