Feasibility Assessment for a Coffee Agroforestry Carbon Project

Dec 31, 2009

Ecometrica conducted a feasibility assessment investigating the potential of developing small-holder forest carbon projects in around 37,500 hectares of land in coffee growing regions of Uganda. Proposed carbon projects would aim to encourage around 5,000 coffee farmers in each of the target regions to establish agroforestry plantations in existing coffee growing land through planting shade trees. This report was to assess the potential, eligibility and basic feasibility of these carbon projects, through the establishment of agroforestry systems including shade coffee, and boundary planting.
