Support your commitment to protecting and restoring your forests and waterways. Learn more about how to find the right partner to grow your conservation carbon and nature project. 

We can help by connecting you with local organisations and lay out the steps towards setting up a project.

We work with landowners to establish a community-owned business that retains the carbon rights.

To participate in a carbon project, communities first need to partner with a local NGO who, along with Nakau, can provide technical support on the ground.

The customary landowner’s forest also needs to be under clear threat from logging or land-clearing. 

The area you want to measure for carbon should be more than 500 hectares to make a viable carbon project. Land cannot be high altitude or hard to reach.

Customary landowners and communities need to hold clear and uncontested rights to their land. In the carbon projects we help grow, the land and carbon rights always remain with the landowners.

Spotlight community: Sirebe Tribe

The Sirebe Tribe were the first in the Solomon Islands to trade conservation forest carbon on the voluntary carbon market. In partnership with local organisation NRDF under the Babatana Rainforest Conservation Project, they chose to protect their forest from logging and land-clearing and begin the journey towards carbon trading and community resilience.

Sirebe have protected 800+ hectares of rainforest, built a team of dedicated Indigenous Rangers, formed a strong women-led savings group and led on decisions about how their forests are managed. They're a leader for other tribes on Choiseul who have since joined the Babatana Rainforest Conservation Project.
