Carbon Market Access for Smallholder Farmers
Making carbon markets accessible to small holder farmers would seem to lie at the intersection of livelihoods and regenerative agriculture. But with the nuances of both disciplines, finding ways for small holders to benefit from increased productivity and fees for environmental services is no small task. Recently, Solidaridad and Rabobank launched ACORN a direct trade platform that aims to make access to carbon markets for smallholder coffee farmers in Colombia a reality. In this webinar, Seth Petchers from the Sustainable Food Lab will join these two organisations to explore what it took to engineer and launch ACORN, and describe the benefits that they expect farmers will realize.
