Carbon Farming potential in Honduras

According to the FAO, Honduras has 1.76 million hectares (16%) of land consisting of pastureland and meadows. Since 2001, it has lost about 960,700 hectares of land that was once covered by 30% or greater tree cover, and 323,900 hectares (33.7%) of its primary forests has been destroyed. On average Honduras is losing approximately 20,200 hectares of primary forest each year and 56,500 hectares of land with tree cover 30% or greater.

Honduras has enough pastureland available to potentially sequester up to 44 million tonnes of CO2/year through reforestation and agroforestry carbon farming. That's the equivalent of taking 10 million cars off the road in the USA.
