The Guangxi Huanjiang IFM (conversion of logged to protected forest) Project (hereafter “the project activity”) is implemented in Huanjiang Maonan Autonomous County, Hechi City, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region of China by Huanjiang Maonan Autonomous County Forestry and Grassland Bureau. The geo-coordinate of the project proponent is 107°51′E~108°43′E and 24°44′N~25°33′N, the total area is 188,774 ha, which includes the Improved Forest Management (IFM) of the forests in the conversion of logged to protected forest. The area of the project activity is 8,566 ha, including 1,363 subcompartments spreading over Huashan forest farm, Chuanshan Town, Dongxing Town, Luoyang Town, Minglun Town, Shuiyuan Town, Si’en Town, Da’an Township, Lonyan Township, Tiancai Township, Xianan Township, Xunle Township, Changmei Township of Huanjiang Maonan Autonomous County. All these forests are state-owned forests or privately-owned or collective-owned, and have the legal right to forest ownership. The species involved in the project are Broad-leaved tree, Chinese fir and Pinus massoniana. Before the implementation of the project activity, the trees are logged based on a valid and verifiable government-approved timber management plan for harvesting the project area. The implementation of the project activity converses the trees to protected forest to reduce the GHG emissions for about 1,148,890 tCO2e in 20 years, the average annual emission reduction is 57,444 tCO2e and Verified Carbon Units with buffer deduction is about 1,082,817 tCO2e in 20 years, and average annual VCUs with buffer deduction is 54,140 tCO2e. The project activity will contribute to the environment (biodiversity conservation, rocky desertification prevention and soil erosion control), thus contribute to sustainable development.
