Trees for Global Benefits, Uganda

Description:
In Mitooma-Bushenyi in Uganda, the environmental conservation organisation Ecotrust has agreed with local landowners that in exchange for planting native species they will receive payments based on the amount of carbon their trees capture. After 15 years, those involved in the PES will be able to harvest the timber from the land. The carbon credits are delivered to Ecotrust, which then deals with the credit buyers.
