Improving Lives in Northern Malawi

Improving Lives in Northern Malawi

Communities in Nkhata Bay North, northern Malawi, continue to face the worsening effects of climate change and bring challenges to people living in the region. Heavy rainfall causes soil erosion, and unprecedentedly long dry-seasons affect crop production. The subsequent loss of income is unfortunately leading to increased deforestation.

To tackle this, Temwa Carbon Balance offers organisations and individuals an opportunity to balance their CO2 emissions through community tree-planting, sustainable farming and community-led management of local natural resources in the hard-to-reach villages of Nkhata Bay North. We have successfully planted 91,986 trees since the scheme was first launched in 2020, with 40,911 seedlings out planted in 2022 and 33,850 seedlings currently being out-planted in this planting season.
