The title of the Project, Scolel´te, was chosen by smallholders participating in the project. It is the original Plan Vivo´s Project and the name, Plan Vivo, is derived from the land use plan designed by the smallholders, in which, they describe the forestry and agroforestry systems they will implement in their lands.
Some of the achievements are: Practical experience leading the development of the Plan Vivo System, the use of the first methodology established for the carbon sequestration projects through forestry, benefits in economical and capacity building terms for 97 communities and 2500 families of smallholders in Chiapas and Oaxaca, gender equality through out all the activities developed, participation of indigenous people, more tan 9,000 hectares of rainforets and forests protected and 518,631 tCO2e compensated through carbon offsets credits sold around the world.
Other achievements: the 2013 National Forestry Merit Award (winner) & 2011 Initiativa Mexico Awards (nominee)

Ecosystem Marketplace's Forest Carbon Portal Project Inventory is a clearinghouse for information on land-based carbon market offset projects. It attempts to provide some transparency on the scope, value, duration, and financing mechanisms of terrestrial carbon sequestration projects around the globe.
