Scolel Te is a project to sequester carbon within restoration forests and improved agroforestry systems, which will enhance the livelihoods for rural farming communities in Mexico. This is a registered Plan Vivo project involving hundreds of producers implementing Plan Vivo technical specifications on small landholdings. The reforestation and agroforestry systems implemented by the project are designed to capture more carbon than the baseline conditions of pastureland, scrubland, degraded forests or traditional cropping of corn and beans.
