MITIGATE CARBON EMISSIONS THROUGH PLANTING MANGROVES AT KIPUMBWI FOREST
The Full Story
Mangroves have (carbon) hoarding issues
Blue carbon ecosystems (mangroves, sea grasses and salt marshes) can be up to 10 times more efficient than terrestrial ecosystems at absorbing and storing carbon long term, making them a critical solution in the fight against climate change.
OFFSET CARBON PROJECT IN HANDENI DISTRICT-TANZANIA
More than 90% of Tanzanian households rely on biomass (e.g. wood & charcoal) for energy; it is mainly used for cooking and occasionally for space and water heating. Wood and charcoal are obtained almost exclusively from the forest (90%), which is a key driver of deforestation in Tanzania. The impact of deforestation is widespread, affecting the livelihoods of local people – mainly the rural poor - where it disrupts important environmental functions, such as water and soil nutrient retention.In Tanzania, cooking is traditionally carried out indoors on thermally inefficient 3-stone fires, which results in incomplete combustion and the production of large amounts of smoke and indoor air pollution. Indoor air pollution has been linked to a range of health problems such as acute respiratory infections (ARI) in children, chronic obstructive lung diseases (such as chronic bronchitis and asthma), lung cancer and neonatal complications.
