Carbon farming for agricultural and environmental sustainability and profitability (CAFESUP)

The CAFAESUP project is a carbon financing initiative for landowners and farmers.

Country: Kenya and Tanzania
Lead organisation: Food Security for Peace and Nutrition Africa (FSPN Africa)

Soil carbon sequestration offers untapped potential for removing CO2 emissions from the atmosphere. It can help achieve net zero by eliminating  agriculture-related emissions in Kenya and Tanzania. The CAFAESUP project is a carbon financing initiative for landowners and farmers. The project uses support services to scale monitoring and the quantification of emissions and sequestration by using proprietary artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies. This  intervention can enhance farmers’ livelihoods through a sustainable income with the sale of carbon credits, thereby bolstering their resilience and financial well-being. The project team will draw on their extensive on-the-ground experience, where they  have successfully collaborated with over 200,000 farmers in Kenya and Tanzania on other projects.
