Global Green Carbon Submits USAID Project Proposal

on 21-Jan-14


Chicago, IL - Jan. 21, 2014 - Global Green Carbon Corporation (GGC) announced today that their Letter Of Interest for The Guayllabamba Watershed Reforestation Project (The Project) has been accepted by USAID for their
Development Innovation Ventures (DIV) grant competition. DIV identifies, tests, and supports innovative and cost-effective solutions to the world's most intractable development challenges. The Project is a reforestation (A/R) effort on 200 ha of degraded forests within the Paramo ecosystem (an ecosystems located above 3,600masl). These forest ecosystems have traditionally acted as natural water storage for Andean cities with the characteristic of releasing water during dry periods. The Guayllabamba Watershed supplies fresh water to the Quito metropolitan area as well as
numerous small communities in rural Ecuador.
A team from GGC and foundacion KARIBE, an Ecuadorian NGO project partner, is scheduled to meet with USAID in Quito in mid-February to discuss the future of this project.

Global Green Carbon, a global project developer of reforestation efforts and a Land Use Land Use Change and Forestry (LULUCF) global consulting consortium has been affiliated with Chemonics since January 2012 where both act as subcontractors to a global engineering firm that works closely with the United States Government offices of USAID.
