The Plan Vivo Trees for Global Benefit Project in Uganda (coordinated by Ecotrust) has won the 2013 Low Carbon SEED Award! Founded in 2002 by UNEP, UNDP, and IUCN, SEED identifies and supports innovative locally driven start-up enterprises that integrate social, environmental and economic benefits into their business models. The Trees for Global Benefit project was selected from applicants from over 85 countries by an international jury. This award is another feather in the project’s cap, in recognition of its pioneering efforts to support rural smallholders to move to more sustainable livelihoods by accessing climate finance through the Plan Vivo Standard.
Congratulations to the Ecotrust team, and thanks to all supporters of the project!
