AQUAE LABS

Replicable solutions for optimizing the restoration of Biodiversity & Biomass of our planet

Imagine a world where environmental restoration and financial gain go hand-in-hand. That’s the vision behind AQUAE LABS, a real time transformative collaboration between AQUAE IMPACT EXCHANGE CO.L.LC and Earth Restoration Pvt. Ltd. We’re not just restoring the planet; we’re digitizing a natural assets and transacting values to the Global Commons using Web3.

Shared Vision for Sustainability

Climate change and environmental degradation are real threats faced by quite a majority of communities worldwide. There is a huge opportunity – cost to consider in the context of such impacts, therefore AQUAE LABS combines financial expertise with sustainable farming and environmental restoration methodologies to tackle ongoing environmental as well as economic opportunity – costs head on. Our mission is to create a healthier planet while fostering greater societal well-being by validating living components of biomass and biodiversity in order to sustain a natural cascade of ecosystem services productivity over time.

AQUAE LABS is an objective research initiative dedicated to advancing sustainable farming practices and environmental restoration, as well as conservation practices such as Analog Forestry, Agroforestry and Permaculture. Our products and services are based on evaluating the ecosystem services and productivity of the living components of biomass and biodiversity of these regenerative agricultural approaches as a guaranteed asset in order to bridge the financial capital required to restore the planet’s life support system.

Analog Forestry focuses on creating diverse, resilient, and productive forest ecosystems that mimic natural forests. It emphasizes the use of native species and promotes ecological restoration while supporting local communities.

Agroforestry integrates trees and shrubs into agricultural systems, offering multiple benefits such as improved soil fertility, enhanced biodiversity, increased resilience to climate change, and additional income streams for farmers.

Permaculture, on the other hand, is a design approach that aims to create sustainable human habitats by mimicking patterns and relationships found in nature. It emphasizes principles such as observation, diversity, and maximizing beneficial connections between elements within a system.

Shared Vision for Sustainability

AQUAE LABS is an objective research initiative dedicated to advancing sustainable farming practices and environmental conservation by bridging the financial capital that is required to restore the planet’s life support system through proof-of-work digitized smart-contracts which can be replicated bio-regionally. We bridge the gap between the financial resources needed for restoration and the communities working tirelessly on the ground.

Analog Forestry, Agroforestry, and Permaculture are all innovative approaches to sustainable land management and biodiversity conservation.

Permaculture, on the other hand, is a design approach that aims to create sustainable human habitats by mimicking patterns and relationships found in nature. It emphasizes principles such as observation, diversity, and maximizing beneficial connections between elements within a system.

These three approaches offer holistic solutions for addressing environmental challenges while promoting sustainable livelihoods and enhancing ecosystem health.

AQUAE LABS’s commitment to farmland development monitors, records, and validates (MRV) proof-of-work based outcomes by setting replicable guidelines that moderate payments for ecosystem services (PES) to the farming communities. Through innovative solutions powered by Web3 and data-driven insights, we turn environmental action into measurable outcomes.

AQUAE LABS Functions

AQUAE LABS will focus on directing outcomes from primary research and ground level demonstration initiatives that overlap fields of regenerative finance with environmental restoration & conservation, while integrating Web3 supported IoTs to Monitor Record and Validate these data. The research outcomes at our demonstration sites can be traced and replicated to finance practical applications that support our networks of farmers and landowners to benefit from these current investment opportunities in the face of climate impacts and environmental degradation.

Measuring the Impacts

The highest end of our developments aggregate the values of Biomass, Biodiversity and specific Ecosystem Services, such as the products of Photosynthesis. Land parcels are compared based on a score system using a first of its kind ; The AQUAE LABS’s Ecosystems Credit Index (ALECI) is a methodological approach for comparing and layering the Biodiversity and Biomass value of one land area against another allows investors to interact with the mission of scaling these impacts to a broader base of farmland ecosystems. The ALECI is a web3 based farmland management ecosystem that offers investors a guarantee on the proof-of-work and traceability for each credit as well as payments made for ecosystem services.

How we measure Biomass, Biodiversity, and Primary Ecosystem Services

The unique Aquae Labs Ecosystems Credit Index (ALECI) offers landowners a portfolio of Flora and Fauna, based on the taxa that have been validated at the ground level. From birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles to invertebrates as well as a range of plant biomass is validated to each ALECI portfolio as well as the Primary Ecosystem Services of photosynthesis that Captures Carbon, Produces Oxygen and purifies ground water back into the atmosphere.

We Unite For

Vision

It is our vision to create an economic system that correlates wealth with the health of a sustainable planet for all of its biodiversity.

Mission

It is our vision to empower farmers and landowners develop more adaptive resilient ecosystem areas such as Analog Forests/Agro-forests/ and permaculture systems that promote natural Landcare management methods through the use of web3 technologies that guarantee living assets into emerging new digital markets.

Who We Are

We are a collective of dedicated individuals deeply invested in the restoration of our planet. With a passion for environmental stewardship, we bring together expertise from diverse fields to drive meaningful change.

What We Do

Ecosystem Restoration & Consultancy

Aquae Labs offers comprehensive time tested ecological interventions that are data-driven and coupled with creative designs that accelerate ecosystem restoration and can provision an additional layer of income for conservation efforts. AQUAE LABS has the capacity to design improved biodiversity management within anthropogenic (urban / peri urban / rural ) landscapes, recognizing significant opportunities for managing landscape features and ecological connectivity.

- Watershed management services are based on our unique environmental impact assessment (EIA) that can help project developers both regional and global to understand and evaluate the financial opportunity-cost of various land management practices using our products and services.

- Coral genes conservation

For Urban areas

Our city-focused services design living landscapes such as living plant arrangements for ambient cooling / urban tree features / as well as urban habitat features / while urging the adoption of science-based targets using emerging markets for biodiversity and primary ecosystem services such as Oxygen.

Biomass Credits​

We have pioneered using a formulaic approach to evaluating plant biomass values across various stages of ecosystem maturity, paving the way for sustainable and regenerative biomass management practices.

- Physiognomic Formula is used to assess the level of plant structures and their maturity.

Biodiversity Credits​

Aquae Labs Biodiversity credits and MRV tool quantifies biodiversity values across taxa for ecosystem diversity as well as to plan for stages of ecosystem maturity.
