Halo Verde – Timor Leste // GO BACK

The first Plan Vivo project developed in Timor-Leste and the first of its kind in South East Asia, the Halo Verde project builds lasting partnerships with Timorese farmers by working together on agroforestry, land restoration and sustainable agricultural practices. Certification of climate benefits and recent project expansion was possible thanks to a Darwin Initiative Grant from the UK government.

The HV project has come a long way since 2011 by:

  • Improving the livelihoods of more than 950 farmers through financial incentives for the carbon stored in trees planted by them
  • Rehabilitating marginal lands and providing technical assistance to both male and female farmers
  • Introducing an only females fund and provision of scholarships to more than 450 high school and 13 university students from the project area.
  • Steadily including new participants and expanding the area rehabilitated year by year and aiming to 322 ha by 2029.
