  5. 5. COMACO CARBON APPOACH  COMACO is linking to the carbon markets to increase sustainability through two distinct streams Household products that reduce environmental degradation  Launching COMACO high efficiency cookstove project in 2012 in partnership with Shared Value Africa  100% commercial approach Agriculture, Forestry, Other Land Use (AFOLU) Approach  Using a landscape based approach  Requires additional donor support
  6. 6. COMACO CARBON APPOACH  Agriculture, Forestry, Other Land Use (AFOLU) Approach  Land use practice interventions driven by COMACO:  Agroforestry including Gliricidia & Faidherbia Albida: CDM Standard AR-AMS0004 version 2  Minimum / no till conservation agriculture  Modeling approach based on annual survey  Decrease in fertiliser usage: suppressed demand?  89 kg Avg. SSF vs. 400 kg minimum service level  Modeling approach based on annual survey  Exploring REDD through Community Conservation Areas, currently under development
  7. 7. COMACO CARBON APPOACH  MRV based on annual COMACO farmer survey  Approach fully integrated into overall COMACO model: participation & aggregation, CMS, geo-coordinates, integrity  2010: 17,999 COMACO farmers surveyed  2011: target of 45,300 COMACO farmers surveyed  Farmer Card  Annual Group Compliance Assessment  Subset sample verified by independent auditor  Emission reductions based on conservative default benchmarks (modeling approach) regarding conservation farming adoption, fertiliser reduction and agroforestry
