About the project

The Kasigau Corridor REDD+ Project is a pioneer wildlife conservation project developed by Wildlife Works Carbon LLC. The project aims to protect a wildlife corridor of over 200,000 hectares of dryland forest with over 11,000 wild elephants that live in the local ecosystem. The area had been at threat of deforestation by local communities as a result of population growth and agricultural activity expansion. The project aims to prevent ca. 19 million tonnes of GHG emissions from being avoided between 2010 and 2039.
