AfriCarbon is consequently uniquely positioned to provide the following services to landowners:

  • design of a carbon sequestration project in degraded thicket, including the restoration protocols suitable for different soil types and landscapes;
  • development of a project document to enable the generation of carbon credits on the CDM or voluntary market;
  • measurement of baseline carbon stocks in soils and biomass;
  • monitoring of changes in carbon stocks in soils and biomass during the restoration process;
  • facilitating the validation and verification of the carbon credits generated;
  • selling the carbon credits on the local or international market.

The transaction costs of a single carbon sequestration project can run into millions of rands, and carbon buyers generally prefer to transact in large carbon credits quantities. This is a strong motivation for a large supplier entity. This will:

  • enable landowners to achieve economies of scale;
  • mimimize transaction costs;
  • enable carbon credits to be marketed in large bundled packages.
