This project employs the u003ca href=u0022https://www.climateactionreserve.org/how/protocols/ncs/mexico-forest/u0022u003eMexico Forest Protocol Version 3.0u003c/au003e. The Mexico Forest Protocol provides standardized guidance for carbon enhancement projects and addresses eligibility, baseline, inventory, permanence, social and environmental safeguards, and measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) requirements.rnrn

The projects will be registered with the Climate Action Reserve (CAR), a registry program with a successful track record of implementing its Forest Protocol in Mexico along with regional representation and strong community relationships. CAR offers a robust protocol focused on baselines, inventory, permanence, and has key social and environmental safeguards coupled with active measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) requirements. The nature-based projects will issue removal-focused Climate Reserve Tonnes, the unit of offset credits used by CAR.rnrnRead more about u003ca href=u0022https://www.climateactionreserve.org/about-us/u0022u003eClimate Action Reserveu003c/au003e.
