Opportunity Title: Nature Based Solutions: Wet Land Restoration Funding
The goals of the Nature Based Solutions: Wetland Restoration funding are to support restoration, conservation, and climate resilience for wetlands in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. The Delta region includes over 150,000 acres of highly organic peat soils that are significantly subsided to depths of 20 to 30 feet below sea level. This subsidence threatens the State and Federal water projects, Delta communities and the region’s rich agricultural production. Subsidence is the result of oxidation of the peat soils and results in over 1.5 million tons of CO2 emissions annually. Re-wetting the peat soils stops subsidence and resulting carbon emissions.Example projects include, but are not limited to: • Managed and tidal wetland restoration• Crop conversion to rice cultivation• Technical assistance to access the Voluntary Carbon Market• Planning to prepare for and support eligible projects (e.g., scoping, design, environmental compliance, science) • Land acquisition or easement
Within the legal Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta of California.
