“Cam(bio)2 pilot project with cooperatives in Guatemala, was placed and sold in the voluntary carbon market”
Using the methodology Cam(bio)2 allowed Nahualá and Renacimiento Cooperatives in Sololá, Guatemala, in 2014 to sell the first carbon credits from Cam(bio)2 in the voluntary carbon market, with the support of Spanish organization CeroCO2.
The objective of this project is to strengthen the production capacity of coffee farms and improve the adaptation to climate change in two indigenous communities. The Nahualá Cooperative is made up of 157 men and 67 women, and Renacimiento Cooperative is constituted by 22 women and 55 men. These two cooperatives are part of Federación Comercializadora de Café Especial de Guatemala (FECCEG), which provides support in the operative part of the project.
Indigenous farmers in this region develop farming of coffee and banana agroforestry systems with high environmental commitment and respect.
In this Project, carbon credits are very high quality because they generate benefits beyond climate change mitigation, such as improving living conditions of indigenous families and protecting biodiversity in the jungle of Cerro Pecul.
The money investment will be focused on collective activities, such as purchasing organic solid fertilizers (compost), improving biofertilizers production, and enhancing post-harvest processing of coffee.
