Invest In Forests For People and Climate

Certified nature based conservation solutions that protect local resources

Carbon Tanzania is a social enterprise that has overturned conventional landscape conservation in East Africa with its innovative, business approach to protecting forests and wildlife. We help to make conservation an economic imperative for people, who need to see tangible benefits from efforts to protect their natural resources.

In 2020 Carbon Tanzania's natural climate solutions benefited 63,000 indigenous and forest people, protected over 650,000 ha of forest and verified 1.4 million verified emissions reductions.

All three of our operational projects are NCS lighthouses. Lighthouse projects are examples of natural climate solutions generating positive environmental impacts and socio-economic benefits. They projects elevate the successful human, environmental and climate stories behind these initiatives.

The Yaeda Valley Project has been awarded the 2019 Equator Prize and recognised as "an outstanding example of a local, nature based solution to climate and sustainable development." - Jamison Ervin, UNDP

The Ntakata Mountains Project has been awarded the 2021 Pathfinder award in the category Land Management - protected and conserved area solutions that contribute to land degradation neutrality
