THE FOREST PLAN WILL BRING STAKEHOLDERS TOGETHER AT AN UNPRECEDENTED SCALE, FROM THE FOREST FLOOR TO THE BOARDROOM, IN COMMON CAUSE AND ALIGNED ACTION TO CARE FOR LIFE.
Through REDD+, buyers and financial partners drive resources directly to the ground level by purchasing VERs.
The projects implemented though partnerships with specialized project developers deliver transformative impacts for communities and governance.
Through those impacts, new value is realized for forest communities, which over time can help transform the drivers of forest loss into durable incentives for forest protection.
The active Kasigau Corridor REDD+ project protects 200,000 hectares of dryland forest that was in danger of being lost to cattle ranching, poaching, subsistence agriculture, and illegal tree harvesting.
The project, supported consistently by sales of VERs for over a decade, has been central in enabling the community to make critical infrastructure investments that underpin their wellbeing.
In addition to the infrastructure investments, through the LCC mechanism the communities of Kasigau has awarded over 26,000 bursaries (51.6% to girls), investing over $1.2 million USD into their children’s future with the support of REDD+ financing.
