Carbon Credits project of Blue Deal Peru approved

The last week of November, the Blue Deal partnership in Peru received the official notification from the NWB Fund announcing that they approved our proposal for a project to evaluate the feasibility of Carbon Credits market in 2 communities in Piura, Peru.

The initiative responds to the needs of local partners, with the aim to improve the livelihoods for the local communities through agroforestry. And to protect the catchment area against erosion and surface run-off water.

This is a joint proposal written by the Dutch team from the so-called KIWI learning programme and the Piura technical team working on the framework of the Blue Deal Peru partnership. The project starts next year and it involves organisations and tools, such as the NWB Fund watershed reforestation tool which the NWB Fund has also supported in other parts of the world.
