Indigenous communities must benefit from climate change action.

Carbon Tanzania has been empowering indigenous communities to conserve their forests since 2010. By buying our forest carbon offsets you too can support these communities to protect their forests.  This starts with securing ownership of land, and includes basic law-enforcement and wildlife monitoring. These communities earn an income from their forest conservation activities when you purchase our certified forest carbon offsets. This leads to a reduction in deforestation and the accompanying sustainable development of some of Africa’s poorest and most marginalised communities.

“When the Hadzabe see a forest, they see a multitude of resources, like when we walk into a supermarket and look through our options, the Hadzabe see ripe fruit, unripe fruit, they see tools and resources for their homes; they can name every tree, every bird, every plant. They understand the value of the natural world”.  – Marc Baker

Why it’s important

We are certified by Plan Vivo, a third party organisation that certifies the adherence of forest conservation projects to strict standards, ensuring our REDD+ carbon offsets are real, measurable, permanent and benefit indigenous communities.

Forest Conservation

For Carbon Tanzania, conserving forests is about more than protecting habitats and wildlife – it is about combating global climate change. Did you know deforestation currently accounts for approximately 20% of the world’s carbon emissions? If we can stop deforestation, we can help slow down the rate of global climate change.
