Carbon Reduction


About this Project



In Pakistan, 34% of mangrove forests were lost between 1990 and 2010, leading to floods, land erosion, and significantly less sequestering of carbon from the atmosphere. The mangrove reforestation project is located across the Indus Delta within Sindh, Pakistan's third-largest province. The region, which looks out to the Arabian Sea, is home to a high biodiversity of benthic invertebrates. It sustains productive fisheries, serves as an important feeding ground for migratory shorebirds and supports the socioeconomic livelihoods of coastal villagers who collect shellfish and crabs. These intertidal wetlands also provide fertile ground for sequestering and storing vast amounts of atmospheric carbon. The protection, restoration and sustainable management of this natural resource is being led by Indus Delta Capital in partnership with the Government of Sindh.


This large-scale mangrove program is restoring around 226,000 hectares of degraded delta banks with remnant mangrove forest, protected and monitored over a 60-year lifespan. This project has already been operational for six years and has restored more than 86,000 hectares of degraded mangrove forests and tidal wetlands, to which these carbon credits have now been issued in 2022.
