Blue gums, planted in sections of the Annya State Forest have been negatively impacting the biodiversity of the area. By protecting the land against further clearing and replanting it with natural vegetation, the Myanmar Project helps preserve the habitat of endangered native species such as the scented spider orchid, the powerful owl, and the long-nosed potoroo.
Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe
The Kariba REDD+ Forest Protection project ensures forest and wildlife protection (including the endangered Black Rhino), on the southern shores of Zimbabwe’s Lake Kariba, and supports the independence of local, war-affected communities with employment-creating activities, such as agricultural workshops, low-emission brick-making, establishing fast-growing fuel-wood plantations and ecotourism.
Bengkulu and Lake Toba, Sumatra
In order to preserve Sumatra’s rich fauna and flora and to generate clean energy to meet the country’s growing demand for energy, two run-of-river hydro projects have been built in Indonesia. Using natural height differences instead of dams, the hydro plants maintain agricultural and ecological balance. In addition, reforestation programs in each catchment area further minimise harm to the environment and fund various projects benefitting the community.
Breathing Space involves the dissemination of 300,000 durable, affordable and clean energy cookstoves. The project helps families breathe healthier air and spend less time and money on cooking fuel. This places a smaller demand on forests, and emits fewer greenhouse gases, as well as creating a sustainable channel of market distribution.
