This community reforestation project based in the foothills of Mount Kenya combines hundreds of individual tree planting activities and enables local communities to improve access to food and create additional sources of income beyond subsistence farming.

In addition to generating revenue from the sale of carbon credits, the project provides training and facilities to improve crop production, grow trees as sources of food and medicine, and use wood more efficiently as fuel.
In addition to delivering approximately 42,000 tonnes of emissions reductions annually to help take urgent action to combat climate change (SDG 13), the project delivers multiple other sustainable development benefits. These include:

She’s already started to apply some of the conservation farming techniques she has learned, and is planting a new bed of maize.
