The International Carbon Sequestration Project addresses issues related to natural resources, carbon sequestration and green space development, and the conservation of natural resources with the full participation of local people. Accordingly, the purpose of this study is to analyze the development effects of carbon sequestration project with the approach of sustainable rural development in Esfarayen. The type of applied research is the descriptive-analytical method used and library and field methods have been used to collect data. The statistical population of this study includes the statistical population of the study including 8 villages whose total population is covered by the carbon sequestration project in Esfarayen city. Therefore, based on the Cochran's formula and a reliability coefficient of 0.95, 244 heads of households were randomly selected as a sample among rural households. Data were also collected through a structured questionnaire. Data analysis showed that achieving the desired result based on analysis of variance test is not equal and there is a difference between satisfaction with the dimensions of the design. So that the carbon sequestration plan has not had a positive effect on the region's economy, but in social dimensions (such as empowerment, participation, reduction of migration) and environmental (environmental protection, rangeland conservation, optimal use of resources) has been relatively desirable. Because the local people are not completely satisfied with the economic results of the project based on its goals and it has not been able to affect the family's livelihood.
