Climate change is the most serious threat facing our planet today. Africa emits less than 3% of global emissions, yet the increased temperatures and a greater likelihood of extreme weather events resulting from climate change are projected to greater increase the threat of drought and increased water scarcity in Africa than any other continent.
African countries need more control, greater impact, and superior resources in the global fight against climate change. It is our mission to work with Government, communities and partner organizations to continue to put African countries at the forefront of climate change action globally, by helping to build resilience through REDD+ projects in Africa.
Working across over 70 countries and territories Worldwide, and on the ground in nine countries in Africa to fulfill their mission of Conserving the lands and waters on which all life depends, The Nature Conservancy’s mission of restoration is one very much aligned to our own mission at BCP of Making conservation of wildlife habitat valuable to people.
“To be able to partner with the largest international conservation organization in the world and with a team of professionals of TNC’s caliber is so exciting for us at BCP. Our most established collaboration is on a carbon offset project in Zambia, but this is just the beginning of our partnership to scale regionally in sub-Saharan Africa. It is a partnership that demonstrates the need to join forces and work together to support community and Government partners at the coalface of real climate actions. Every year brings a rise in the Earth’s temperature, and new powerful collaborations are needed to avoid the point of no return”.
Dr Hassan Sachedina, BCP CEO and Founder.
BCP’s partnership with TNC follows nature-based solutions to protect and restore existing African dryland forests, while building the resilience of some of the most vulnerable communities in the region through sustainable livelihood initiatives, which provide long-term and climate-smart revenue streams. We’re excited to embark on this work with TNC and cannot wait to share more details in time… watch this space!
Our goal is 30 million tons of carbon reduced annually across 30 million acres, benefiting 3 million people in Africa by 2030.
