Arresting Zambia’s high deforestation rate is critical to reducing carbon emissions and curbing climate change

Our envi­ron­men­tal con­ser­va­tion pro­gram looks to reduce for­est degra­da­tion and loss of for­est ecosys­tems. We pro­mote pub­lic aware­ness and strength­en the capac­i­ty of com­mu­ni­ties to address cli­mate change. Zam­bia is not immune to the adverse impact of cli­mate change and remains vul­ner­a­ble to droughts, floods and land degra­da­tion. One of the key con­trib­u­tors to cli­mate change, is Zambia’s high defor­esta­tion rate, almost 4 times the glob­al rate. From 2001to 2021, Zam­bia has lost 2.07Mha of tree cov­er, equiv­a­lent to 8.6% decrease in tree cov­er and 766Mt of CO₂ emis­sions. If noth­ing changes, Zam­bia risks los­ing a sig­nif­i­cant part of its forests. The loss of forests is dri­ven by human activ­i­ty relat­ed to agri­cul­ture, char­coal and fuel wood pro­duc­tion. High defor­esta­tion rate is adverse­ly impact­ing liveli­hoods espe­cial­ly for the most vul­ner­a­ble and ham­per­ing efforts to reduce pover­ty

We believe that in order to achieve sus­tain­able trans­for­ma­tion in the lives of our ben­e­fi­cia­ries, Trans­paren­cy should be at the core of our part­ner­ships. There­fore, we work close­ly with our part­ners with full account­abil­i­ty of all sup­port, that includes arrangement of site vis­its of the tar­geted ben­e­fi­cia­ries We also accept In — kind sup­port that may include dona­tions in the form of actu­al learn­ing and build­ing mate­ri­als  as well as tech­ni­cal sup­port around infra­struc­ture. Finan­cial sup­port may also entail pay­ments direct­ly to our sup­pli­ers and acknowl­edge­ment by our ben­e­fi­cia­ry school recip­i­ents to achieve full trans­paren­cy. Through our Part­ner­ship approach of Trans­for­ma­tion and Trans­paren­cy, we ensure that dona­tions to our ben­e­fi­cia­ries achieve the intend­ed trans­for­ma­tion.
