In 2021 the growing demand from the global economy for high-quality carbon credits aligned with the drive from Datooga communities to protect their forest and resulted in the expansion of the Yaeda Valley Project. The project is now Plan Vivo’s largest forest protection project and is known as the Yaeda – Eyasi Landscape Project.
Our 2021 Impact Report includes data that for the first time shows that in northern Tanzania the species count in community protected areas is comparable with national parks, emphasising the importance of community-led conservation.
For this report, we have also worked on a new infographic that demonstrates how carbon revenue can deliver international climate finance to front line communities who are protecting their threatened forests.
