Ban Non Thong and Ban Nong Muang Carbon Bank Project
- sequester CO2
- micro finance
- environmental education
This project was funded by PATT through donations from the Premium Carbon Free offset programme we were running at the time. It was undertaken in collaboration with the internationally renowned Population and community Development Association (PDA).
The project involved tree planting to restore a community forest on abandoned, marginal land for restoration of biodiversity, carbon sequestration and as a community resource.
We also implemented training and capacity building initiatives related to sustainable forest management within the village, and set up a tree nursery managed by the youth committee.
Funding was also allocated for the establishment of a village cooperative micro credit bank, and additional programmes aimed at combating environmental issues, poverty, gender inequality, and urban migration.
