dc.description.abstractThis powerpoint shows the results of the Ex-ante Appraisal C-Balance Tool (EX-ACT) run for a project in Tanzania. The Accelerated Food Security Project in Tanzania seeks to contribute to higher food production and productivity in targeted areas by improving farmers' access to critical agricultural inputs. The EX-ACT appraisal of the project showed that carbon is sequestered in soils due to improved agricultural practices but that increased fertilizer usage results in carbon emissions. Overall, the project is found to have a net carbon balance of 20.5 Mt. This represents the net amount of carbon sequestered. Thus, the project is able to supply environmental services and contribute to climate change mitigation.
