WEBINAR | Regional Partnership: WithOneSeed Community Forestry Program

Date: Wednesday 19 July
Time: 1:00pm – 2:00pm (AEST)

Andrew Mahar will present on the WithOneSeed program, which has been a ground-breaking community forestry project in Timor-Leste. The program has been running for over a decade.

The WithOneSeed community forestry program was the first internationally certified carbon project, under the Gold Standard Foundation, and is a social enterprise acting on climate change through community lead forestry in Timor-Leste. It is dedicated to developing village based economies, creating viable environments, to delivering climate education and strengthening regional partnerships.

The WithOneSeed approach is simple in its theory and application. The program is growing trees and planting ideas. The innovation comes from the annual incentive payments made to subsistence farmers who maintain the trees, paid from the sale of carbon credits into the international carbon market.
