Great Bear (South Central Coast) Forest Carbon Project-Grandfathered under GGIRCA(ID: 104000000011319)
Nanwakolas Offset Limited Partnership
Improved Forest Management project type within the BC Forest Carbon Offset Protocol (FCOP), generating emission reductions by protecting forest areas previously designated, sanctioned or approved for commercial logging. The project activities include changes in land-use legislation that result in the protection of forest areas and reduction of harvest levels across the project area.
The Project encompasses the southern portion of the Central Coast Land and Resource Management Plan (LRMP) area, an area now known. The project area encompasses 1.5 million hectares of land and fresh water and over 780,000 hectares of productive forest land. As a result of the project activity, a total of 218,000 hectares are now protected in either Conservancies or Biodiversity, Mining and Tourism Areas (BMTAs).
The project plan for this project was originally validated under the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Targets Act and been accepted under the Greenhouse Gas Industrial Reporting and Control Act transitional provision.
The BC Carbon Registry is established under the Greenhouse Gas Industrial Reporting and Control Act. The BC Carbon Registry enables the issuance, transfer and retirement of compliance units used to fulfill the compliance obligation of regulated operations under the Act, and supports the Province of British Columbia’s annual commitment to have a carbon neutral public sector.
