Overview

The Taita Hills Conservation and Sustainable Land Use Project is expected to cover an additional 200,000 hectares of natural forest and savannah grassland ecosystems adjacent to Wildlife Works’ existing REDD+ sites. Althelia’s investment of approximately US$10 million spread over 8 years will draw leverage from the neighbouring projects to enable the creation of this third area. The investment represents an important step towards terrestrial carbon accounting at a jurisdictional scale, whilst empowering sustainable economic development of rural communities in the area. At the same time, it will also enable further dispersal and migration of threatened wildlife throughout the Tsavo Conservation Area, significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions through the avoidance of deforestation and degradation and will facilitate the regeneration of already degraded areas.
