The 20th edition of the WEFE Nexus lecture series will look more closely at the topic of carbon sequestration, the mechanisms for its operation, and explore the potential of (and steps needed for) the USAID ERAS-I Oasis project to earn the necessary certification. 

The lecture will be delivered by Salibayev Alim, President of Qazaq Carbon, Director of SF Analytics (The Qazaq Carbon Private Fund was established in February 2023 as a specialized platform for creating climate projects aimed at solving environmental problems and improving the well-being of local residents in regions with serious environmental problems),  whose experience in this field will cover the following topics:

  • Features of carbon certification, including the steps and formula used to calculate carbon potentials
  • Market mechanisms for addressing climate-related and environmental challenges
  • Models of carbon intervention possible for the USAID ERAS-I Oasis Project
    • Carbon model for forest plantation in desert and semi-desert regions;
    • Soil restoration model for pastures and abandoned drylands;
    • Carbon certification of regenerative (restorative) agriculture, methods for increasing carbon sequestration in farmers' fields.
