The project has been realized in partnership with 300 landowners who are looking to secure small forest projects and reorient the local economy towards the traditional Brazilian nut harvest, creating more economic opportunities.
How the project works
The areas in which the projects are developed are monitored thanks to satellite data and 3D images (Lidar Imaging technology), used to analyze the real forest's cover, detecting possible deforestation in the area. Thanks to machine learning algorithms, every project is able to estimate the carbon measure that forests actually absorbed and removed from the atmosphere.
We decided to collaborate with Pachama, a data-driven company that applies AI principles to protect woodlands in many areas around the world, and restore our planet's ecosystems. A scientific and technological approach allows us to give back to our users data ever more precise and complete on the progress of the projects they choose to support for offset their own climate impact.
Why this project
MUGO believes in technology's potential, so it wasn't hard to find common ground with Pachama. The innovative monitoring system and the Verified Carbon Standard and Carbon Action Reserve certifications make the compensation process even more transparent and secure.
