Darwin Fellowship — MRes Carbon sequestration in community forests, St Helena


Ref: DPLUS024
Type: Darwin Plus
Project Leader: Shayla Ellick
Lead Institution: Gov of St Helena
Host Country Institutions:
Start Date: 2014-04-01
End Date: 2015-10-31
Funding: £21,617.00
Website:
Status: Completed
Regions: UKOT
Countries: St Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha
Purpose: The Mres will investigate carbon sequestration of selected endemic tree species, in order to provide a scientific basis to register a carbon off-setting scheme. This will offer visitors information on the carbon sequestration potential of schemes on St Helena. In turn, the project will also allow calculations of current and future carbon capacity of restoration sites on the island. This project will enable global businesses and international travellers to offset their carbon footprint by funding tree planting initiatives on Saint Helena. In addition, this would feed into St Helena’s biodiversity targets and allow development of community forests and habitat creation/restoration.
