1. Carbon capture: Community Forestry in SIERRA NORTE DE OAXACA, MEXICO.

Programme in 4 communities of 45,158 ha total. Improvements in agricultural practices, protection of standing forests, reforestation efforts, and reduction of predicted deforestation will improve incomes while increasing CO2 sequestration capacity. Funding needed for technical assistance, forest protection greenhouses and financing of agricultural conversion to agroforestry systems. Total cost: $US 113,783.00 per year. Duration: 30 years. Benefits: Carbon offset of 3 million tons over the lifetime of the project. Participants: Ixeto and Uzachi communities, Consejo Civil Mexicano para la Silvicultura Sostenible, A. C.

2. International Model Forest Program - CHIHUAHUA.

A model forest is a working forest managed on sound environmental principles by a partnership which includes government, industry, NGOs, indigenous people and community groups. The forest is used for a variety of purposes including timber production, conservation, wildlife habitat and eco-tourism. The forest site provides examples of sustainable forest management in action by meeting economic, environmental and social goals. On potential economic resource from the model in its carbon sequestration ability. Participants: The government, industry, NGOs, indigenous people and community groups.

3. Afforestation and Community Improvement in the SIERRA GORDA QUERETARO.

This project involves a 25 year extension to a programme which was started by Grupo Ecológico Sierra Gorda, A. C. in 1987. The programme involves both plantation and natural afforestation, for commercial use, mature forest protection and community improvement in the Sierra Gorda, a semi-tropical area of east-central Mexico. For each of the seven years of the project, the Grupo will plant 1000 ha of land, which is currently used for grazing or marginal agricultural production. As well, a further 1000 ha will be naturally afforested. A total of 7,000 ha will be planted and an additional 7,000 ha will be protected in order for natural afforestation to occur. Finally, for each of the 10 first years of the project, 500 wood-burning cookstoves, 40% more efficient than existing wood-burning cookstoves, will be installed (this combustion efficiency is not included in the calculation of GHG emissions). Total cost: Investment: $US 4,542,000, first harvest revenues: $US 17,234,000, final harvest revenues $US 35,021,000; Net Value $US 47,713,000. NPV6.0: $US 12,981,000, Rate of Return: 12.0%. Duration: 25 years. Benefits: 2 million tonC over the lifetime of the project. Participants: Grupo Ecológico Sierra Gorda, A. C., Woodrising Consulting Inc.

4. Commercial Development of the Tropical Rainforest in CAMPECHE on a Sustainable Basis.

The project is located in the southern part of the State of Campeche, on the lands of the extension of Ejido Champotón. Local involvement in the project comes from major venture company formed with 50% participation from both the Ejidatarios and

Maderas Ese, S. S. de C. V., a forest products company. The joint venture corporation is named Silvicultura del Ejido de Champotón. The project is oriented towards developing sustainable year round commercial timber practices in the tropical rainforest area of the State. These activities would include the selective harvesting of specific timber, reforestation, the transformation of the woods and other forest products (honey, gums, resins, ornamental plants) into commercially viable, environmentally sound products. The project also seeks to create a permanent job base for the local inhabitants, thereby addressing their need to establish an economic alternative to slash and burn agriculture. Economic analysis of the potential of the forests for pharmaceutical bio-prospecting, carbon sequestration and ecoturism will also be performed.

Total cost: The project consists of three phases, each of which need funding: Preliminary studies to determine the scope, pre-feasibility and business plan of the project: $US 50,000. Feasibility, Integral Forest Management Programme and Business Plan: $US 600,000-750,000. Pilot commercial implementation in selected sections of the tropical rain forest of Integral Sustainable Forest Management Programmes, selected pilot commercial implementation in three to five areas of intensive tropical rain forest silviculture and selected pilot commercial implementation in three to five areas of commercial plantations:

$US 700,000-800,000.

Total financing needed approx. $US 1,600,000. Duration: Phase one: 3 months, Phase two: 10-12 months, Phase three: 36-48 months.

Benefits: Not available. Participants: Silvicultura del Ejido de Champotón, Business Council for Sustainable Development for the Gulf of Mexico,

University of Campeche.

5. Agroforestry and carbon storage in the MONARCH BUTTERFLY RESERVE

The project involves pre-feasibility and development work for a project designed to enhance the viability of the Monarch Butterfly Reserve in Michoacán State, principally through the generation of incomes for local communities from sustainable

agroforestry techniques.

6. CHIAPAS Cashew Nut Program

The project would involve the extension of an existing program to support the development of cashew nut plantations in the coastal zone of Chiapas (known as Soconusco). Since 1993, some 2500 ha of plantations have been established in the

Soconusco and the municipality of Cintalpa.

7. Carbon storage in CHIAPAS

The project would seek to arrest deforestation in lands managed by the Sociedad Campesino Magisterial (SOCAMA) in Chiapas, and to reforest degraded areas, in order to capture carbon. SOCAMA has developed a Forest Management Plan that establishes targets for the short, medium and long term that include establishment of forest plantations and development of agroforestry systems, as well as efforts to regenerate native forests. Funding for feasibility studies is sought to evaluate: local forest characteristics, carbon capture potential, monitoring and verification options, forest management plan, carbon credit quantification and valuation.
