We are excited to announce that as of 4th November 2013 we are selling credits from the newly validated Kariba REDD project. This project aims to reduce deforestation and forest degradation in the Zambezi catchment area of Zimbabwe, while also providing sustainable livelihood opportunities for poor communities in this region.

The project is located on the shores of Lake Kariba in Northern Zimbabwe and spans around 1 million hectares, connecting several National Parks and Game Reserves such as Chizarira, Matusadona, Mana Pools National Park (which is also a World Heritage Site) and Lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia.

This is a new collaboration with Carbon Green Africa - http://www.carbongreenafrica.net/ - who run the actual project and make the credits available.

We are extremely excited to be working with Carbon Green Africa, an organisation committed to protecting Zimbabwe's forests as well as the world's climate. With deforestation rates as serious as they are both within Zimbabwe and across the world, their work is invaluable to safe guarding our collective futures.
