Coorest NFTrees — Benefiting Local Communities and the World at Large
Coorest takes pride in the fact that it employs the strength of nature to combat climate change. This is done by taking advantage of real trees (conceptualised as individual NFTrees by Coorest), land ownership and agricultural practices. However, there are also more immediate effects of these practices — such as empowering local communities and farmers.
As the world’s population grew and the nations had to adopt more industrial means to fulfil the needs of their populations, the carbon footprint of individuals skyrocketed. Today, there are numerous movements aimed to support and bolster rural communities in order to make sure traditional agriculture and husbandry methods can provide adequate sources for an increasing number of people.
We have a responsibility to ensure that the world’s food supply is safe and sustainable. The global food system is complex and fragile. It is essential that we work together to make it more resilient. The world’s food demand is expected to increase by 70% between 2000 and 2050. This means that the world will need to produce 70% more food in 2050 than it does today. The challenge of feeding a growing population in a changing climate will be one of the most critical issues of our time. The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that industrial agriculture contributes around 22% of greenhouse gas emissions, which accounts for about 2/3 of all emissions from human activities. Industrial agriculture also produces about 80% of water pollution, which represents about 40% of all water pollution worldwide.
Coorest, with its promise to plant, protect and produce natural solutions, aims to mitigate the carbon dilemma we are facing. It also directly assists local communities and farmers with their sustainable agriculture operations in regions where Coorest has projects. The most important one of these projects are the NFTrees. Perhaps one of Coorest’s more unique and influential projects, NFTrees are Coorest’s method of harnessing the power of blockchain technologies and linking them to plants and animals.
These NFTrees will be cultivated by local communities and farmers to make sure they are properly taken care of, and when the time is right, their crops will be sold to the market for an adequate price. Thus, local communities and, in the end, the entire population will immensely benefit from access to organically sourced, sustainable and ethically produced food.
This way, Coorest reinforces the idea that the end goal of reducing carbon footprint can be done via ethical, sustainable means.
Coupled with the fact that the sustainable economy is booming and is expected to continue providing substantial outcomes. Coorest believes that there is much it can offer to tackle the carbon emission problem — and has the technology and innovative ideas to make its contribution.
