|Ibi Village : the forestry Carbon Sink|
The objective of the Ibi-Batéké carbon sink is to reforest 4 500 ha, at the rhythm of 900 ha per year during 5 years. The 900 ha are cultivated as follows:
- 800 ha : combination of cassava and trees,
- 100 ha : pure forestry.In 2017, Ibi Village will deliver a minimum of 1 million ton of CO2 . For the moment, this is the only program that will deliver forestry carbon credits in the Democratic Republic of Congo before 2012. In total, the carbon sink will sequestrate 2.4 million ton of CO2 in a permanent way (at least during 30 years).
In the Ibi-Batéké carbon sink the grass savanna will be replaced by forest. This has a double advantage : the carbon dioxide is absorbed during the growth of the trees, and the bushfires, which provoke high emissions of CO2 and CH4 in the atmosphere, disappear.
