How a new program can reduce carbon emissions, restore and conserve forests, improve livelihoods, and create jobs in Africa.
A Closer Look at the Catalyst
Africa Forest Carbon Catalyst founders Ed Hewitt and Kevin Juma provide an insider's look at how the program came about and how it could be a key natural climate solution in Africa.
Shining a Light on Natural Climate Solutions in Africa
Africa represents 20 percent of the total global tropical forests, and 13 percent of Africa’s landmass is covered by rainforest. Not only is it a powerhouse for nature, it could also be a powerhouse for natural climate solutions.
We are excited to support African innovations that will help tackle climate change, protect and restore some of the planet’s most important and vulnerable forest landscapes, and make a positive impact on people’s livelihoods.
