Large-scale Nature-Based solutions projects
aDryada develops, operates and finances large-scale (> 50 000 ha) nature-based projects (reforestation, land restoration, mangroves, wetlands…) all over the world with a major ambition: having a tangible impact on biodiversity, climate and people’s living conditions, because the three go together.
To reach this goal the company has developed an innovative and efficient business model based on high-end sequestration carbon credits. It unlocks large-scale investments and generates long-term financial flows for stakeholders and partners aDryada works with (governments, leading global financial institutions, corporations, public and non-profit organizations, local private actors, communities).
As a co-founder of the Organization for Biodiversity Certificates (OBC), aDryada aims to further increase the value of nature-based solutions projects thanks to the deployment of biodiversity certificates at international level.

high-quality carbon credits
Developed by aDryada and financed by its partners, in association with the Ivorian company AGRO-MAP, the Karidja project is part of the National Strategy for the Preservation, Reforestation and Rehabilitation of forests in Ivory Coast.
In collaboration with local communities, Karidja aims to recreate the Haut-Sassandra forest, which have been destroyed by more than 85% during the past twenty years.
aDryada brings value to Governments, Communities, Investors & Off-takers_
Most countries are today aware that biodiversity is a key asset : it supports agriculture resilience and productivity, it improves water availability and quality, it is a source of new medicines, it is attractive for tourism and, last but not least, it helps to fight against climate change. But governments lack funding, which covers only 20% of the needs estimated at the international level. aDryada brings them a global solution including:
- Project identification management expertise
- Carbon expertise on Nature-Based Solutions (carbon credits)
Large-scale carbon and biodiversity projects should above all be carried out by people and for people, since they are integral part of nature we wish to preserve and restore. Translating this principle into actions that support the success of projects is the main challenge we face, regardless of the continents.
- This explains aDryada:
Considers local people as key partners in all projects: they are the most relevant workforce throughout the life of the projects (deployment and maintenance).
- Implements essential social support measures (construction of basic infrastructure when necessary, support for non-agricultural jobs, in particular for women and young people in the area, etc.)
- Builds specific agricultural transition programs on the outskirts of the area to be reforested/protected when relevant
- Supports the evaluation of structuring activities for the overall economic development of the areas in which projects are deployed.
Those actions are naturally in line with the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals.
In a context where companies and financial institutions are encouraged to demonstrate their contribution to the fight against climate change and protection of biodiversity, investors are looking for attractive nature-based projects.
aDryada offer them a large pool of “Infra-like” projects to invest in, with country risk mitigation as well as a variety of investment vehicles and high returns. aDryada team also brings its expertise in financial structuring and evaluating project investment opportunities.
More and more companies already acting to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions understand the need to define a long-term strategy for the purchase of carbon credits. Given their Net-Zero strategy, they should buy at least as many carbon credits as they have hard-to-reduce emissions left over. “High quality” is one of their major requirement to avoid any green washing risk.
Since aDryada’s focuses on biodiversity and work closely with local population, governments and certification bodies, carbon credits generated by its projects are of high quality:
- Additionality: our projects sequestrate carbon (“carbon sinks”). It is not “avoidance” it is “reduction“. Moreover, and pending the deployment of biodiversity certificates, carbon credits are the most relevant tool to finance the missing 80% of biodiversity project budgets
- Permanence: on top of a classical buffer management, high biodiversity content limits disease risks and improves resilience to climate change. Close collaboration with local people insure their willingness to protect the protected areas.
- No double counting: aDryada anticipates the future Article 6 regulation and works with authorities in each countries it operates to ensure that the carbon credits generated by its projects are not double counted.
- Certified: all aDryada’s projects are in process to be certified by internationally recognized bodies (Gold Standard, Verra)
