The afforestation/reforestation project was carried out in land holdings owned by members of the COOPEAGRI cooperative, and comprised the following three components: afforestation (100 ha), assisted natural regeneration (400 ha) and agroforestry systems (400 ha).

Agresta participated in the monitoring and verification phases of the project under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). Specifically, Agresta developed the tasks of writing the project technical documents, designing and testing the inventories and carrying out the greenhouse gas (GHG) removal calculations. In addition, Agresta provided support during the verification process conducted by a third party and the verification and certification of the project within the CDM framework.
