Khasi Hills REDD Project, Meghalaya, Northeast India
CFI helped design India’s 1st community forest carbon project in NE India. CFI has worked in Meghalaya since 2003, helping to build capacity among the indigenous Khasi. For this project, 10 Khasi Kingdoms formed a Federation in order to collaborate more effectively with the design and implementation of the REDD project.
This project is now registered and certified under the Plan Vivo, UK voluntary standard for carbon offset credits. CFI produced a short marketing film by one of India’s celebrated documentary film makers, Ms. Minnie Vaid, in order to introduce prospective carbon brokers and buyers to the project and the Khasi community.
