The task force on carbon researches how to sequester carbon through restoration, as well as innovative financial mechanisms that can fund restoration through carbon markets or pollution-related taxes. These activities aim to build a dialogue that strengthens sustainable land use practices as they relate to a growing regional climate agenda.
The task force on carbon conducts research aimed at providing answers to the following questions:
- What is the carbon sequestration opportunity from restoration in Latin America and the Caribbean?
- What economic mechanisms exist to link carbon benefits from restoration to financial resources?
- What are countries in the Latin American and Caribbean region doing to achieve their climate goals by adopting climate-smart restoration practices?
- What are the methodologies being used to account for carbon sequestration?
- What avenues currently exist for restoration practitioners to get revenue from providing carbon benefits?
