Why

Protecting forests brings about positive and measurable economic, social and environmental benefits to local communities, while safeguarding important biodiversity.

Preventing deforestation is a critical piece of the climate solution and can mitigate up to a third of the global emissions needed to avoid dangerous climate change.

How

Our natural climate solutions work with indigenous and forest communities to protect threatened community owned forests. By developing forest conservation projects in collaboration with forest communities we are able to reverse the trend in habitat loss in community and local authority lands that is so common across tropical Africa.

Our projects generate high quality, forest carbon credits. These forest carbon credits can be used to offset unavoidable emissions elsewhere in the world by organisations striving to meet “net zero” commitments. The revenue from credit sales is paid directly to the forest communities empowering them to determine their own developmental needs. Verified forest-based carbon credits are an effective way to finance the protection of natural ecosystems as well as supporting forest communities to earn revenue from certifiable forest conservation activities.

Carbon Tanzania’s projects are certified by internationally recognised third party certifying organisations ensuring that our forest conservation projects result in real, measurable and permanent emission reductions and that they deliver real benefits to biodiversity and indigenous communities by addressing key SDGs.

Our projects follow REDD methodology

(Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation) is a framework created by the UNFCCC that promotes the sustainable management of forests in developing countries. Carbon Tanzania’s community led approach to REDD allows forest communities to earn revenues in return for measurable and verifiable forest protection activities, demonstrating that our approach to REDD is a powerful tool in delivering climate finance to large landscape conservation projects with measurable outcomes for both biodiversity and forest communities.

Carbon Tanzania’s Projects

Carbon Tanzania is currently implementing three forest conservation projects in Tanzania.They all share the qualities of protecting
large areas of natural forest that are wildlife-rich, of connecting other protected areas to one another and of enhancing conservation
outcomes by increasing the areas of forest available for biodiversity to thrive.

We measure and report project activities in line with the UN SDGs.
