Deforestation is a global problem that accounts for about 15% of the world’s emissions. Zambia’s deforestation is among the highest in the world.

At BCP (BioCarbon Partners), we work hand-in-hand with rural communities to protect vital forests. By keeping trees in Zambia standing both people and wildlife benefit.

Since 2014, the Community Forests Program, implemented by BCP, is made possible by the support of the American People through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). This program is designed to support the Zambian Government’s REDD+ strategy by establishing the largest REDD+ program in the country, protecting over 700,000+ hectares of threatened forests.
