Through Norway-based climate solution platform CHOOOSE, we're supporting projects we care about to offset our carbon.
On the edge of the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest, three indigenous communities – Palma Real, Sonene, Infierno – and over 30 high conservation value species live in 591,851 hectares of landscape threatened by illegal mining, logging, ‘slash and burn’ agriculture, and infrastructure development.
This project addresses the local, economic drivers of deforestation and forest degradation by supporting the development of socially inclusive farming, land-use capacity building, and improved forest protection and surveillance of natural resources. Through conservation, protecting the rainforest ecosystem, and scaling up sustainable community forest management, the project significantly reduces global emissions.
The Chyulu Hills, close to Kenya’s southern border with Tanzania in front of Mount Kilimanjaro, is home to Kenya’s largest surviving population of elephants and one of its foremost large-scale wildlife and wilderness areas.
The Chyulu Hills REDD+ project aims to protect the Chyulu Hills landscape, its forests, woodlands, savannahs, wetlands and springs, and its wild populations of Africa’s best-known animals – lions, cheetahs, wild dogs, rhinos, elephants, and various antelopes. This is being achieved largely by enhancing and strengthening landscape protection, improving livestock management practices, employing forest rangers, bolstering employee motivation, creating alternative income, jobs, and employment opportunities, and supporting stricter environmental law enforcement.
The tropical forests are amongst the planet’s most biodiverse ecosystems and support some of the most threatened and charismatic species on earth. The Southern Cardamoms are a critically invaluable biodiversity hotspot and host 55 threatened wildlife species and 29 forest communities.The Southern Cardamom REDD+ project protects 497,000 hectares of tropical rainforest in South-West Cambodia which are globally significant for wildlife conservation, ecosystem servicing, and community livelihoods. The project uses global best practices of forest protection and community development to safeguard the forest.
