Carbon Farming potential in El Salvador

According to the FAO, El Salvador has 637,000 hectares (31%) of land consisting of pastureland and meadows. Since 2001, it has lost about 64,100 hectares of land that was once covered by 30% or greater tree cover, and 1,200 hectares (1.9%) of its primary forests has been destroyed. On average El Salvador is losing approximately 75 hectares of primary forest each year and 3,800 hectares of land with tree cover 30% or greater.

El Salvador has enough pastureland available to potentially sequester up to 15.9 million tonnes of CO2/year through reforestation and agroforestry carbon farming. That's the equivalent of taking 3.4 million cars off the road in the USA.
