Building on the hard work and success of the
Gallmann Memorial Foundation we have
collaborated to create the Mukutan Conservancy REDD+ project. The project is being verified and validated under both the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and Climate, Community and Biodiversity (CCB) Standard.
We are partnering with the Clinton Foundation on the design and implementation of the community aspect of the project. Read more about it here:
