In India, Creduce is creating a digital registry to help smallholder farmers earn carbon credits

Creduce, one of India’s leading  providers of climate change and carbon asset management services, plans to create a digital ledger to help small and marginal farmers claim carbon credits, its founder Shailendra Singh Rao. “We will soon create the world’s first carbon credit registry based on micro-level agriculture and agroforestry. This will benefit marginal  farmers and bring them into the mainstream carbon credit market”, he told Businessline in an online communication. 

 Currently, if a farmer wants to apply for emission rights of carbon dioxide, his farm  should be at least 1,500 hectares for the project to be financially feasible. That is because ₹15-20 lakh agricultural carbon credit project activity is required to redeem the credits.
