Healthy soil is a major carbon pool but over 70% of African rangelands are moderately to severely degraded. Restoring these landscapes will be a potent weapon in the fight against climate change.
Rewilding landscapes through the reintroduction of native species and ecological management practices enriches biodiversity at all scales and enhances the long-term carbon storage capacity of ecosystems.
Carbon finance is a catalyst in creating inclusive nature-based economies across Africa. Rewilded lands are more resilient to environmental and economic shocks, which helps protect local communities against the impacts of climate change.
We partner with our customers from assessing a project’s feasibility all the way to project accreditation and monitoring.
The Tswalu Kalahari Project is a pioneering initiative by Oppenheimer Generations Research and Conservation, supported by Rewild Capital on the carbon development side, aimed at the large-scale restoration and conservation of a section of African rangeland in South Africa. This is the first private protected area in South Africa to earn carbon credits management put in place to adapt to climate change.
