HOW DOES IT WORK.
CQC is passionate about utilizing Nature-Based solutions to mitigate climate change and has initially focused on the use of soil as a critical carbon sink.
We use Agroforestry and Regenerative Agriculture to sequester atmospheric carbon in the form of soil organic carbon across smallholder and broadacre farms.
Through the use of regenerative agricultural land management practices, CQC can help farmers sequester carbon into the soil whilst increasing the productivity of the land.
This is a win-win situation for the farmers who develop more productive drought-resilient agriculture land and generate returns via carbon credits for removing carbon from the atmosphere.
CQC is currently active in Australia partnering with experts in regenerative agriculture practices but is also exploring opportunities to assist farmers in Malawi to conduct soil carbon projects.
Our Cleaner Cooking Projects have many additional and secondary project benefits with key nature-based aspects including providing communities with bamboo seedlings to develop renewable sources of firewood and avoided deforestation.
