Climate, Community, and Biodiversity
Boomitra enables an ecosystem where ranchers can access knowledge and digital agronomic tools to increase sequestration potential. The sequestered soil carbon then translates to internationally certified carbon credits, of which a supermajority share is routed back to the ranchers involved in the project. The revenue from carbon credits ensures an additional source of livelihood and an opportunity to reinvest in their community.
The project contributes to a host of co-benefits, comprising several community and biodiversity benefits. Grassland management activities increase the productivity of the land, and improve soil health and water quality. The regenerated lands are less susceptible to changes in land use since the ranchers are better equipped to sustain their livelihoods. This in turn ensures that crucial habitats for the flora and fauna of the region are also preserved.
This project contributes to the following UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
