The DE team has worked with the BDA Foundation since 2009 on providing scientific and strategic expertise to help develop their forest carbon projects and to align their efforts with international climate change policy. This has entailed providing education related to carbon markets and processes for developing carbon projects. DE’s experience in ecosystem science and environmental policy has helped guide the BDA project in such a way that it is eligible for funding and partnerships related to climate change with organizations such as the United Nations.
DE is working with the BDA Foundation two develop afforestation and reforestation (AR) as well as avoided deforestation (REDD+) carbon offset projects. DE provides overall project management from conception through to monitoring and issuing of carbon credits.
