Enabling carbon markets in the rice sector (6th International Rice Congress 2023)

Mon Oct 02 2023

CarbonFarm, Gold Standard, IRRI, Rikolto, and BPP are teaming up to give you the keys to understanding carbon markets for rice growers. 

From the Gold Standard website:

Join our exclusive side event on 'Enabling Carbon Markets in the Rice Sector’ at the 6th International Rice Conference in the Philippines on 17th October at 16.30 hrs. This session will cover everything you need to know to develop a successful rice carbon project: from understanding the new Gold Standard methodology, to fostering partnerships working with smallholders and cooperatives, and to leveraging satellite-based MRV (Measuring, Reporting and Verification) to scale

Register now for the conference here and stay tuned for additional updates and information.

Who are we?

 The Business Partnerships Platform (BPP) has recently launched six major initiatives to advance carbon markets in Vietnam. Two of these initiatives will be in the spotlight during our session, shedding light on their transformative work and the potential of carbon market initiatives. In partnership with IRRI and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT): 

  •  The Gold Standard, known for its rigorous climate standards, is currently spearheading a project that combines a digital platform that streamlines the registration and assessment of mitigation projects with a groundbreaking methodology for generating carbon credits from rice production. It also provides the training and capacity building necessary to promote widespread adoption of the platform and the methodology, enabling smallholder rice farmers to actively participate in carbon markets.
  •  CarbonFarm is pioneering the world's first satellite-based measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) solution for rice. This cutting-edge technology can detect sustainable agricultural practices and accurately estimate emissions reductions using satellite imagery and it’s estimated to be 20 times more cost-effective than traditional MRV methods. The project is co-designed and implemented with Rikolto to reduce barriers for small-holder farmers and facilitate the use of carbon credits to finance their transition to sustainable rice production.
