Project Type

The project type refers to the specific category or type of emissions reduction project that is being certified under the Global Carbon Standard (GCS). The GCS only certifies reforestation and afforestation projects, which are projects that aim to increase the amount of carbon stored in trees and forests. These projects are important as they help to remove CO2 from the atmosphere and store it in the biomass of the trees and in the soil.

This information is important because it allows the GCS registry to track the different types of projects that are registered and it also helps to ensure that the projects are being monitored and reported on in a consistent manner. This information is also used to track and verify the authenticity of the carbon debits and their origin.
