Carbon Farming potential in Belize

According to the FAO, Belize has 50,000 hectares (2.2%) of land consisting of pastureland and meadows. Since 2001, it has lost about 205,000 hectares of land that was once covered by 30% or greater tree cover, and 102,600 hectares (2.3%) of its primary forests has been destroyed. On average Belize is losing approximately 6,400 hectares of primary forest each year and 12,100 hectares of land with tree cover 30% or greater.

Belize has enough pastureland available to potentially sequester up to 1.25 million tonnes of CO2/year through reforestation and agroforestry carbon farming. That's the equivalent of taking 272 thousand cars off the road in the USA.
