We are proud to share the news that our forest restoration project in Kibale National Park, Uganda has passed its 3rd VCS and 2nd CCBS verification audit. The Spanish Association for Standardization and Certification (Aenor) verified a net carbon sequestration between 2014 and 2017 in the planted and regenerated forests of 240,850 tCO2 (equivalent to the average yearly emission of 10,472 households in the Netherlands). We are grateful to everyone involved for their hard work and commitment to the project.
Together with our clients we intend to plant and restore the remaining degraded land within Kibale in the coming years. Moreover, we are increasingly focusing on the communities and lands surrounding the National Park. Here we are supporting local income generating activities, promoting the planting of trees and woodlots on agricultural land, training and raising awareness on climate and conservation issues and mitigating human-wildlife conflicts. With these activities, we aim to strengthen the connection between Kibale NP and the surrounding communities.
If you are curious about how you or your organisation could support the Kibale project, do not hesitate to send us a message.
