Life-changing income for the world’s poorest people
COTAP pools contributions from individuals and organizations and supports projects which compensate farmers for planting and maintaining trees on under-utilized portions of their land. Plantings and tree growth are monitored and verified by third parties, and farmer payments are front-loaded and performance-based, paid over a period of 7 to 10 years for plantings which will sequester CO2 over 25 or more years.
