    In the next two years, HAF seeks to generate revenue from the sale of carbon offset credits
    to finance the planting and monitoring of 10 million trees, impacting 70,000 rural families.

    To accomplish this goal, HAF must build new community nurseries
    and strengthen the capacities of farmers to monitor trees

    Trees and price per ton of CO2 sequestration

     

    HAF and its national and international partners sequester 1 ton of CO2 by planting 24 organic fruit trees with farming communities in the countryside of Morocco at a cost of $0.40 per tree,
    totaling $9.60 per ton.

    Help plant trees and attain your Certificate, carbon balance, and investment in people and the world.

    As the value of carbon credits continues to rise, this monetary source is an engine to achieve food security, safeguard biodiversity, secure sustainable livelihoods, and empower people.

    HAF seeks the sale of internationally recognized carbon credits in order to to reinvest in the very localities from which they are generated. This will reinforce tree planting, increase access to clean drinking water, and augment women’s empowerment and youth initiatives.

    HAF’s approach

    CONSERVATION AND
    ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

     

    HAF promotes local and regional
    economic development and resiliency
    by growing trees. HAF has planted 4
    million fruit trees in 26 provinces in
    Morocco, impacting approximately
    30,000 farming families since 2003.

    LAND PARTNERSHIPS

     

    HAF receives land in-kind for nurseries
    from public and civil agencies, including
    the High Commission of Water and
    Forests, Ministry of Youth and Sports,
    schools and universities, the Moroccan
    Jewish community, and cooperatives
    and associations around the country.

    COMMUNITY PROJECTS 
    AND MONITORING

     

    HAF’s tree projects are designed and
    managed by the people who plant,
    irrigate, harvest, and gain livelihood from
    them. Farming families are the sole
    beneficiaries of the new yield and income.
    Communities and HAF’s team are devoted
    to monitoring tree growth. This involves
    oversight of tree survival rates, height, and
    diameter over time to understand the
    development and environmental impact.
    HAF inserts this data into both a registry
    and a Geographic Information System.
    This allows HAF to bolster sustainability.
    HAF coordinates tree distribution and
    planting with farmers, supports irrigation
    installation, certifies and registers trees at
    timely intervals, and conducts training
    programs in the technical areas necessary
    to maximize healthy tree growth.

    Morocco is among the world’ s most vulnerable regions to climate change. It faces deforestation, poor soil quality, desertification, and limited water availability. Two-thirds of agricultural communities are especially prone to extreme poverty. Fortunately, Morocco is pioneering community action and integrated partnership to vitalize self-sustaining horticulture and biodiversity.

    Growing and monitoring trees with farmers strengthens resilience to climate change.

     

    Agroforestry projects with farming communities generate revenue from high quality, organic fruit. We enhance biodiversity by growing native trees. With its robust monitoring team and governmental and civil partnerships, HAF in Morocco is ideally positioned to offer voluntary carbon offsets and participate in a globally credited system. Together we grow and monitor almond, argan, avocado, carob, cherry, date, fig, jujube, lemon, olive, pomegranate, quince, and walnut trees.
