ITOCO is pleased to present to you
TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / October 7, 2021 / ITOCO INC. (OTC Pink: ITMC) ITOCO representatives will present and attend the COP 26 meeting session, Glasgow, UK, from 25 October 2021 to 12 November 2021.
COP26 is the annual United Nations climate change conference. It is the largest such conference in the world. The climate talks will be the largest international summit ever in the UK, bringing together heads of state, climate experts and activists to agree on actions to tackle climate change.
The ITOCO Nopal Cactus carbon capture program in Mexico demonstrated the agricultural innovations of Nopal Cactus that take advantage of the superb adaptation of cacti to dry and arid landscapes, including the fixation of carbon dioxide at night and the closure of spores (stomata ) during the day, allowing producers to earn carbon credits. at an accelerated pace in less than twelve months.
In other words, Nopal Cactus effectively and sustainably removes carbon from the atmosphere.
Nopal Cactus is able to trap up to 30 tonnes of carbon dioxide per hectare per year.
The cactus is also able to provide strong vegetation cover against erosion or desertification while being able to tolerate a wide range of temperatures and thrive in water-limited environments. As is characterized by an extensive fibrous root system providing access to surface water and its succulent stems and pads store large amounts of water per hectare. These can be obtained by factory processing and purified for home use, as recognized by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. The impact on air pollution, soil remediation and water supply would reach and improve many lives in the dry and arid areas that we propose to implement the innovation.
ITOCO will showcase its Nopal carbon capture program as an addition to the Great Green Wall which is now being implemented in more than 20 countries across Africa. To date, more than eight billion dollars have been mobilized and pledged for its support at the international level. The initiative brings together African countries and international partners under the African Union Commission and the Pan-African Great Green Wall Agency.
When completed, the wall will be the largest living structure on the planet – a 8,000 km natural wonder of the world spanning the width of the continent.
By 2030, the ambition of the initiative is to restore 100 million hectares of currently degraded land, sequester 250 million tonnes of carbon and create 10 million green jobs.
This will help communities living along the wall to:
- Cultivate fertile land, one of humanity’s most precious natural assets
- Developing economic opportunities for the youngest population in the world
- Increase food security for the millions of hungry people every day
- Increase climate resilience in a region where temperatures are rising faster than anywhere else on Earth
- Cultivate a new world wonder spanning 8,000 km across Africa
Nopal Cactus prefers dry, well-drained gravel to sandy soils, best in areas of strong sunlight and warm temperatures. Thus degraded areas would be plowed, thus allowing the planting of Nopal Cactus as is the practice in Mexico. This is an inexpensive option to protect the environment, begin land and soil rehabilitation, and achieve these benefits more effectively than the difficult talk of planting trees to begin with. Indeed, planting the Cactus ultimately allows trees to flower more quickly. The maturation period of the cactus is much shorter and thus benefits the people by producing fruits, vegetables, flour, fertilizers, animal feed, biomass, biofuel, etc.
The ITOCO Nopal Cactus program has already proven its worth with more than 1,450 hectares under management with the support of the Government of Mexico, which approved the Paris Agreement adopted at the twenty-first session of the Conference of the Parties (“COP” ) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (“UNDCC”) and takes measures to mitigate its greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions in accordance with the United Nations Land Use Protocol (LULUCF) ), by 2030.
ITOCO will present its Nopal Cactus carbon capture program to the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), made up of fifteen member countries located in the West African region. These countries have cultural and geopolitical ties and share common economic interests.
ITOCO representatives have been invited by the Government of Nigeria to join the diplomatic mission as National Focal Point (NFP) to attend the COP 26 meeting session, Glasgow, UK. Nigeria is a strong supporter and supporter of the principles of the United Nations Framework Convention (Climate Change), while being one of the largest oil producers in the world.
The Secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC Secretariat) requests the usual assistance from governments to facilitate this participation. The Government of Nigeria has duly appointed representatives of ITOCO to attend and present the Nopal Cactus carbon capture offset program at the above-mentioned sessions of the Convention and its Kyoto Protocol.
