Digital Green, founded by Symposium participant Rikin Gandhi, currently works across 4,000 villages and with 450,000 farmers in India. About 60 % of these farmers are in rice-growing regions of the country. Digital Green is actively converting many of these farmers from an anaerobic flood-based cultivation of paddy to the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) which can reduce N2O-N emissions by 0.90 kg ha.
Working with the SLOW LIFE Symposium team on methodology, Digital Green is exploring the potential for Gold Standard carbon credits for farmers adopting SRI. The returns that are raised will be reinvested to sustain and scale Digital Green’s work across India and could open a new channel for voluntary carbon credits for other organisations.
