◆Background of the MOU with DARD
Green Carbon is dedicated to generating carbon credits from natural sources, focusing on Southeast Asia, including initiatives such as methane reduction in rice paddies, livestock emissions reduction, and biochar projects. In Vietnam, we are mainly focused on paddy field projects, promoting such a project in Nam Dinh Province, we have signed an MOU with the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD).
DARD’s role will mainly involve cooperating on the *¹AWD project in Nam Dinh Province, recommending and introducing the project to local farmers, providing guidance to farmers, and requesting cooperation from related organizations. Green Carbon will collaborate with local research institutions and universities in Vietnam to measure methane gas emissions from paddy fields, collect necessary data, and handle the issuance and sale of carbon credits.
Initially, we plan to expand the project to approximately 1,000 hectares in 2024 and about 5,000 hectares in 2025, to expand to around 70,000 hectares by 2030.

*¹ AWD (Alternate Wetting and Drying)
AWD is a technique that involves periodically flooding and naturally drying paddy fields based on the water level. Compared to continuous flooding, AWD can reduce water usage and contribute to the conservation of water resources.
