Just an hour offshore from Australia’s northern border is Timor-Leste, where some people are living on less than 80c a day and 40% of the population below the poverty line. Timor-Leste has one of the smallest carbon footprints per capita in the world compared with Australia, which has one of the largest. Now, we have an opportunity to take responsibility and support our regional neighbours, make a global impact and create a healthier planet.

You can help by purchasing a CarbonSocial carbon credit, the first ever internationally certified carbon credits from Timor Leste.

The funds raised from the sale of CarbonSocial credits will be used to directly pay small landholder subsistence farmers in Timor-Leste to manage the forests through WithOneSeed.

MTP_AM#2A 2016 report on Green House Gas market sentiment conducted by IETA, a non-profit international business organisation established in 1999 to promote market based solutions to climate change, suggests that carbon markets will expand in scale as  result of the Paris Climate talks.  A key finding of the survey is that 82% of survey respondents believe that existing carbon markets will expand in scale as a result of the Paris Agreement. This figure is up from 58% in 2015, showing that feelings are more positive post-Paris.

Carbon sequestration as a result of afforestation/reforestation activities in Timor Leste could lead to the delivery of a number of the Sustainable Development Goals according to Andrew Mahar, co founder of WithOneSeed

The WithOneSeed program shows great potential for income generation for village based communities, but also reveal the extraordinary benefits to the subsistence communities through sustaining family life, providing community and economic development, and opening educational opportunities for farmers and their children.

The WithOneSeed Timor Leste project has embraced the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all.

WithOneSeed particularly helps realise the UN Goals by helping to:

  • end poverty and hunger and promote sustainable farming and lifelong learning
  • promote decent work, sustainable agricultural communities and economic growth
  • take action to combat climate change, manage forests and reverse land degradation
  • encourage global partnerships for sustainable development through relationships with Australian schools
  • empower women and children, and particularly girls, by increasing family income, facilitating children’s education and creating family job prospects.

Furthermore, WithOneSeed also embraces the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in strongly committing to:

  • the right to life, liberty and security of person
  • the right to work, to free choice of employment
  • the right to an adequate standard of living
  • the right to education
  • the right to full and free personal development available through community participation.

WithOneSeed will soon be offering for sale the first ever internationally certified carbon certificates generated from the new forests being planted in Baguia, Timor Leste.  These will be a limited edition and if you would like to register your interest email info@withoneseed.org.au

40 billion tons

By Ker Than

The “social cost” of carbon dioxide emissions may not be $37 per ton, as estimated by a recent U.S. government study, but $220 per ton.

The economic damage caused by a ton of carbon dioxide emissions – often referred to as the “social cost” of carbon – could actually be six times higher than the value that the United States now uses to guide current energy regulations, and possibly future mitigation policies, Stanford scientists say.

A recent U.S. government study concluded, based on the results of three widely used economic impact models, that an additional ton of carbon dioxide emitted in 2015 would cause $37 worth of economic damages. These damages are expected to take various forms, including decreased agricultural yields, harm to human health and lower worker productivity, all related to climate change.

But according to a new study, published online this week in the journal Nature Climate Change, the actual cost could be much higher. “We estimate that the social cost of carbon is not $37 per ton, as previously estimated, but $220 per ton,” said study coauthor Frances Moore, a PhD candidate in the Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources in Stanford’s School of Earth Sciences.

WithOneSeed has become the first ever internationally certified afforestation/reforestation program under the voluntary carbon market in Timor-Leste. The Gold Standard certification process has taken nearly two years and will mean the carbon stored in the trees planted in Baguia, Timor-Leste will be able to be sold on the international market. It is project that the program will generate of 520,000 tonnes of carbon generating a potential $6m into the Baguia and Timor-Leste economy.

The first certificates will go on sale in the next month.  These will be unique in that they are the very first internationally certified ‘social carbon’ certificates available from Timor-Leste.  A call for an ‘expression of interest’ will made and people wishing to be involved in this exciting program will be able to register their interest.
