Located in the western reaches of the second largest rainforest in the world (the Congo Basin), the Mai Ndombe project protects approximately 299,645 hectares of forest from complete loss of forest cover while providing much needed infrastructure and land use services to local communities. WWF are one of the stakeholders. Checkout their video about the project.
Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation in Zambia
Funding from carbon credits allows local communities and forest management professionals to conserve a highly threatened wildlife corridor which separates Zambia’s national capital and the Lower Zambezi National Park. In additional to protecting wildlife habitat and creating sustainable livelihoods, preventing the release of CO2e from deforestation will play a role in mitigating global climate change. Checkout this video of the Lower Zambezi National Park that the Rufansa Conservancy project area buffers.
