“Wetland restoration will provide benefits to the citizens of St. Charles parish such as reduced storm surge, potential job creation and enhanced wildlife and fisheries.” – V.J. St. Pierre, St Charles Parish President
Public lands are eligible to receive carbon credit revenue for wetland restoration and wetland conservation. Carbon credit revenue can offer public resource agencies a significant new revenue stream to supplement and offset the costs of coastal wetland restoration, wetland management and land acquisition. Our services enable government entities to understand the regulatory, financial, and scientific landscape to preserve and restore wetlands and monetize wetland carbon offset credits.
How does Tierra Resources work with public agencies on wetland restoration and carbon credit projects?
Our team of wetland and carbon finance experts work directly with the agency to determine if a project or property qualifies to receive carbon offset credits, the number of carbon offset credits that can be expected to be received each year, and the current market value of the carbon offset stream. In order for a wetland restoration project to be eligible for carbon finance, there must be a wetland carbon offset methodology that applies to your region. Tierra Resources can determine if there is a methodology that applies to your region, and, if not, we can develop a methodology to meet your needs. Once a project is deemed to be financially feasible, Tierra Resources secures funding to have a project developed and approved, and, in conjunction with the public agency, determines when and how to sell the wetland carbon offset credits.
