Appalachian Carbon Partnership
The Appalachian Carbon Partnership (ACP), a project of the Mountain Association for Community Economic Development (MACED), is a powerful new model for promoting the practice of sustainable forest management on private, non-industrial forestland. This program is the first in Central Appalachia to compensate forest landowners for the carbon sequestered by their sustainably managed forests, linking the global issue of climate change directly to local sustainable development in Central Appalachia.

The Appalachian Carbon Partnership (ACP) is a powerful new model for promoting the practice of sustainable forest management on private, non-industrial forest lands. This program is the first ever in Central Appalachia to compensate forest landowners for the carbon sequestered by their sustainably managed forests, linking the global issue of climate change directly to local sustainable development in Central Appalachia.

The ACP works to achieve the following goals:

  • Increase the ecological health and economic value of forests in Central Appalachia.
  • Increase the practice of sustainable forest management.
  • Connect landowners to new revenue options including carbon offsets and other certified sustainable forest products.

The ACP has two lead organizational partners to help with landowner outreach throughout Central Appalachia: Rural Action in Ohio and Appalachian Sustainable Development in Virginia.
