Business Green: “How forestry conservation is sustaining both the climate and livelihoods in the Congo”

In this article, Oliver Griffith explores how Wildlife Works’ Mai Ndombe REDD+ forest conservation project, funded through the sale of carbon credits, successfully reduces deforestation while improving the lives of local communities. Verra is referenced as the body that verifies the emissions reductions for the project and is quoted on the effectiveness of REDD+ project developers in delivering services and addressing drivers of deforestation on a local level.
