C4ES developed the project and facilitated its validation under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and Climate, Community and Biodiversity Alliance (CCBA). The project, which received CCBA Gold status, will undertake ecosystem restoration in the Kuzuko Lodge Private Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Degraded thicket ecosystems will be restored by planting cuttings of the indigenous thicket tree, Portulacaria afra, commonly known as spekboom. The restoration process sequesters large quantities of atmospheric carbon into soils and plants. Sales from carbon credits will fund the restoration process.
