Pre-Feasibility Assessment for Blue Carbon Project in Tanga Region, Tanzania
Fauna & Flora (F&F) and their local Tanzanian partner Mwambao Coastal Community Network (Mwambao) are exploring the potential for a ‘blue carbon’ project focussed on local mangrove forest management in Tanzania’s Tanga region.
TLLG carried out a pre-feasibility assessment of the potential project to:
Assess whether the location is suitable for such a project
Identify possible activity types for the work,
Decide on the most appropriate standard under which to certify credits, and
Assess potential carbon benefits from mangrove protection and restoration activities.
