Abstract
Zanmi Kafe’s work offsets carbon emissions by planting trees on Haitian farms, which improves economic stability for the farmers. Problem: Zanmi Kafe needed a uniform process to pay farmers and to efficiently calculate carbon sequestration using a vast amount of raw data. Solution: To solve this issue, Sewanee DataLab developed an interactive dashboard that displays and analyzes the data. Impact: DataLab’s work has allowed Zanmi Kafe to quantify and analyze the carbon sequestration of their project. The dashboard created will continue to calculate data in future years and serve as a model for other small-scale carbon markets.
