Carbon Tanzania is a local company that creates value for Tanzania’s economy and its people by producing nature-based carbon credits that enable local people to earn revenues from the protection of their landscapes. These carbon credits allow global businesses with credible decarbonisation and nature-positive strategies to invest in a locally produced nature-based solution that serves the climate, communities, and wildlife. The global economy is based on a system which puts a monetary value on resources. Historically, nature, particularly in the global south, hasn’t been valued for the ‘value’ it contributes to economies, including increasing resilience to climate change. Around half of all the earth’s biodiversity is found in areas that are managed and lived in by local communities, natural assets that are not paid for by anyone specifically, but which the local resource-owners bear the cost of protecting. By valuing nature in a way that fits with our global financial systems, we are able to better recognise who should be compensated for the costs they bear in protecting it.

ADAP is registered in Tanzania and currently implements three projects that deal with co-management of protected areas and thedevelopment of beekeeping and wild mushrooms added value chains in Katavi and Tabora regions.
