Temwa Carbon Balance August Report Out Now
Communities in Nkhata Bay North in northern Malawi are facing the ever-worsening effects of climate change: heavy rainfall is causing soil erosion, unprecedentedly long dry-seasons are affecting crop production, and the subsequent loss of income is 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. This now runs alongside Temwa’s new Restoring Forests project. We have successfully out-planted 126,528 trees since 2020, with 33,542 seedlings having been out-planted so far this season. This month, we will also be purchasing around 75,000 seeds to raise in our nurseries.
We are very pleased to report on the project’s success, which has seen ever-increasing community participation.
