Emiti Nibwo Bulora – Tanzania // GO BACK

Emiti Nibwo Bulora a climate change mitigation project that enables small-scale farmers in the Kagera region in western Tanzania to improve their land management methods through tree planting, by giving them access to carbon revenue streams through the adoption of sustainable agroforestry techniques

The project is an Afforestation/Reforestation (A/R) project which trains farmers in sustainable land use management techniques that result in carbon sequestration and deliver economic and social benefits.

After community-led project design, farmers benefit from capacity-building and enhanced skills in sustainable resource management. Through Plan Vivo certification, farmers are able to access carbon payments to enable them to cover costs at farm and household level. These payments for ecosystem service do not only contribute to immediate biodiversity and ecosystems benefits, but also have knock-on effects regarding poverty reduction and capacity development
