Tasmania REDD

This REDD project protects the native forests of Tasmania by making it more profitable for local people to engage in sustainable forest management practices than fell trees and degrade the land. In addition to preserving biodiversity (such as the endangered Tasmanian devil) and protecting the livelihoods of forest-dwelling communities, managing these forests in a sustainable way will also contribute significantly to preventing carbon emissions.

Energy from landfill in Thailand

The Bangkok Kamphaeng Saen East project is Thailand’s first landfill gas project. It converts methane emissions from landfill waste into electricity, channelling it into the country’s national grid. The methane (a potent greenhouse gas) would otherwise escape into the atmosphere, contributing to climate change.

Ecomapuá REDD in Brazil

The Ecomapuá REDD project preserves around 90,000 hectares of the Amazon rainforest on Marajó Island, at the mouth of the Amazon River, by making it more economically advantageous to protect the area rather than open it up to logging – a major cause of deforestation in the region.
