The American Carbon Registry (ACR) modular offset methodology “Restoration of Degraded Deltaic Wetlands of the Mississippi Delta” was designed to be broadly applicable to develop carbon offset projects in the four million acres of wetlands of the Mississippi River Delta.
Tierra Resources and The Climate Trust are now releasing their two-year assessment "Carbon Market Opportunities for Louisiana’s Coastal Wetlands." The report, supported by Entergy through their Environmental Initiatives Fund, will be available in early March at www.tierraresourcesllc.com.
Please join the American Carbon Registry and guest speakers Dr. Sarah Mack of Tierra Resources, Drs. Robert Lane and John Day of Louisiana State University and Dick Kempka of The Climate Trust to learn about the carbon offset potential of Louisiana’s wetlands, the carbon impacts of preventing wetland loss, which restoration techniques show the most potential as wetland offset projects, and the estimated revenue potential that carbon finance can contribute to wetland restoration in coastal areas of the Mississippi River Delta. The presentation will include a Q&A session.
