Yaeda Valley Forest Carbon Project

We have recently worked with project developers to produce a new 101vision on this highly innovative forest conservation project in Tanzania.  The project improves the livelihoods of hunter-gatherer Hadza (or Hadzabe) communities in the Yaeda Valley, Northern Tanzania.

By working closely with the community, traditional leaders and the elected village governments, Carbon Tanzania and Ujamaa Community Resource Team have established a system of Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) under the Plan Vivo Standard.

This is enabling businesses to balance their carbon emissions through investment in Plan Vivo Certificates.  Yaeda is a REDD project (reducing emissions from deforestation & degradation) and strengthens land tenure, enhances and diversifies local incomes, and contributes to local, national and global environmental conservation aims. Forest conservation is happening through a series of interventions including implementation of the approved village land use plan and associated village by-laws, improving forest conservation and management activities and addressing the primary driver of deforestation, slash and burn agriculture.
