Working with local communities to reforest and restore mangroves in the Maputo Bay.

Why did we choose this project?

Reforestation at scale is vital if we are to restore our world. Eden has a high impact approach to reforestation, whereby a variety of native trees are planted in ways that aim to return a forest to its natural state. Mozambique is a biodiversity hotspot and the projects in the country are high impact - mangroves are highly effective at capturing carbon.

How does it work?

Eden partners with local communities to plant native trees and mangroves, and the communities protect their new forests because they have a vested interest in them. Studies conducted show an impressive survival rate of over 80%, even higher when natural generation is factored in.

How do we know it's working?

We work closely with Eden to monitor the impact of your funding. Since they started, they’ve had incredible results - planting more than 650 million trees around the world in Ethiopia, Madagascar, Nepal, Haiti, Indonesia, Mozambique, Kenya, Nicaragua, and Honduras.

Star fact

Coastal habitats cover less than 2% of the total ocean area but account for approximately half of the total carbon sequestered in ocean sediments.
