Seitdem das grösste REDD+ (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation) Projekt 2011 gestartet wurde, werden im Jahresdurchschnitt über 3.5 Millionen Tonnen CO2 eingespart. Das Projekt bietet Bauern und der lokalen Bevölkerung zusätzliche Einkommensquellen und verbessert die Lebensbedingungen in der Region nachhaltig.

The Solution

Durch das Kariba REDD+ Projekt werden fast 785’000 Hektar Wald an der südlichen Küste des Kariba-Sees geschützt. Es ist eines der flächenmässig grössten registrierten REDD+-Projekte und befindet es sich zwischen den Nationalparks Chiazaira, Matusadona und Mana Pools (der Park ist ein Weltkulturerbe). Das Projekt verbindet vier Nationalparks und acht Safari-Reservate und bildet so einen Biodiversitätskorridor, der Waldgebiete und zahlreiche gefährdete Arten schützt. Dazu gehören afrikanische Elefanten, Löwen, und der südliche Hornrabe.

By using the conservation farming method, our community members are able to earn an income from the sunflower seeds and there's no waste: the stalks are used as fences around the homesteads.

The Impact

Das Kariba REDD+-Projekt ist in der Bevölkerung vor Ort verankert und wird von den vier örtlichen “Rural District Councils (RDCs) Binga, Nyaminyami und Mbire verwaltet. Das Projekt unterstützt Programme zur wirtschaftlichen und sozialen Förderung der Menschen vor Ort. Dazu gehört die verbesserte Ausstattung von Kliniken, der Ausbau von Infrastrukturen und die Errichtung neuer Bohrlöcher. Der ärmste Teil der Bevölkerung erhält ausserdem Zuschüsse zum Schulbesuch. Kariba REDD+ schafft auch Arbeitsplätze und alternative Einkommensquellen, die den Menschen vor Ort zu Gute kommen.

Why I get out of bed in the morning

What motivates you at work? For us it's seeing the tangible changes our projects are creating together with local communities in the face of a changing climate that is bringing severe drought to already vulnerable regions.

Overcoming a challenging year

Global temperatures soared and emissions continued to rise, despite the pandemic. Yet, commitment to tackle climate change gained momentum. Not only have the communities survived the pandemic, they have thrived. See the 2020 impact report.
