Kariba REDD+ Forest Protection

Zimbabwe

Saving forests, protecting wildlife and changing lives

Since the Kariba REDD+ (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation) project launched in 2011, more than 18 million tonnes of CO2 have been prevented from entering the atmosphere. The project has also supported the independence and well-being of local communities.

The Context
In recent decades, Zimbabwe has suffered from political and economic turbulence. With limited economic opportunities, desperate communities have delved deeper into the forests, clearing it for subsistence farming and fuelwood. More than a third of Zimbabwe’s majestic forests have been lost. Creating further instability for people with already precarious livelihoods.

The Project
The Kariba Project protects almost 785,000 hectares of forests and wildlife on the southern shores of Lake Kariba, near the Zimbabwe-Zambia border. One of the largest registered REDD+ projects by area it connects four national parks and eight safari reserves, forming a giant biodiversity corridor that protects an expansive forest and numerous vulnerable and endangered species – including the African elephant, lion, hippo, lappet-faced vulture and southern ground hornbill. As well as this, the project implements numerous community- focused initiatives detailed below.

The Benefits
Kariba is a community-based project, administered by the four local Rural District Councils (RDCs) of Binga, Nyaminyami, Hurungwe and Mbire. As such, the project supports a range of activities beyond environmental protection, promoting the independence and wellbeing of these communities. Improved clinic amenities provide better healthcare, infrastructure including new roads and boreholes improve daily life, and school subsidies are offered to the poorest quartile of the population. Project activities in conservation agriculture, community gardens, beekeeping training, fire management, and ecotourism create jobs and facilitate sustainable incomes, benefiting the entire region.

So far, the project has trained 233 local people to generate profit from sustainable beekeeping. Community gardens, beekeeping training, fire management and ecotourism create jobs and facilitate sustainable incomes that benefit the entire community.

Infravest Wind Power CHANGBIN AND TAICHUNG

TAIWAN

Harnessing the energy of coastal winds to power Taiwan communities
These two wind farms help drive Taiwan’s renewable energy expansion and pave the way for sustainable development. Each year, this project prevents over 320.000 tonnes of greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere.
 

The Context
Despite the abundant coastal winds along its shoreline, Taiwan remains heavily reliant on fossil fuels, which make up over 75 percent of its total installed electricity capacity. Shifting towards sustainable energy is vital for both Taiwan’s national security, and for its economic and environmental prosperity.

The Project
This project harnesses the plentiful supply of wind energy along Taiwan’s coast near Taichung in the west and Changbin in the east. The wind farms consist of 62 wind turbines, and generate over 480.000 MWh of clean power each year which is supplied to the local electricity grid.

The Benefits
In addition to contributing to global climate change mitigation, this project is engaged in several nature preservation enterprises such as regular beach clean ups and guided tours that raise awareness about climate change, pollution and other environmental issues. The project has also led to the forestation of 2.400 m2 of land, encouraging local biodiversity.

Your investment in the project supports the energy transition and sustainable development goals in Taiwan.

Biomass Power Project at Godawari Power and Ispat Limited 20MW

India

Godawari Power and Ispat Limited (GPIL) has installed a 20MW biomass based power project at Siltara, Raipur. The purpose of the project activity is to generate electricity using renewable biomass residues i.e. rice husk to reduce GHG (CO2) emissions. As biomass is a CO2 neutral fuel, the power produced by the GPIL from renewable biomass will have zero GHG emissions. Also as it is replacing fossil fuel intensive based power generation from Indian grid, thereby results in reducing emissions from such fossil fuels. 

In the project activity, biomass shall be combusted in the boiler for producing high pressure steam to generate 20MW electricity. The total annual generation of electricity from the project activity will be 126.72 GWh. The rice husk will be collected from a radius of 50km from projectsite. The project has obtained the requisite clearances and is commissioned on 01 November 2010.

Government of India has stipulated the following indicators for the sustainable development in the interim approval guidelines for Gold Standard projects. 

Social and Economic wellbeing: The project would lead to generation of direct and indirect employment and improving economic condition of the area. The project activity adds income to the farmers by providing added
economic value to the produce of farmers by procuring rice husk from the rice mills. This will definitely help the
millers to pay better price to the farmers for their paddy crop.
Since the biomass resources are to be collected and transported to the plant site from the fields, opportunities are being generated for the rural people to collect and transport the biomass residues. The rice husk transportation to site will provide employment opportunities to a number of trucks and other similar vehicles will be making trips to project site throughout the year. This will increase the transport related income and employment. The above benefits due to the project activity ensure that the project would contribute to social and economic wellbeing in the region.

Environmental wellbeing: The project activity utilises biomass potential available for power generation, which
otherwise is left un-utilised (left to decay or burnt). Thus it aids in the resource utilization and avoids pollution due to burning / dumping of biomass in nearby areas. Further, project activity replaces part of power generated in the grid using predominantly fossil fuels such as coal, lignite and gas. The project would not result in increase of GHG emissions and cause no negative impact on the environment.

Technological wellbeing: Successful implementation of this project would encourage other promoters to adopt
similar technology in the relevant sector and hence the project leads to technological wellbeing.

In view of the above, the project participants consider that the project activity strongly contributes to
sustainable development in the host country.

Orange Suvaan Solar Photovoltaic Power Project in Maharashtra EN

India

Solar Energy for India

M/s Orange SuvaanEnergy Private Limited (OSEPL) is constructing a solar energy project in the village of Mhasaleim district of Dhule, Maharasthra, with a capacity of 100 MW (50 x 2 phases).

The aim of the project activity is to generate electrical energy through the operation of a photovoltaic solar power plant. The total installed capacity of the project activity is 100 MW.

The objective of the Project Activity is the generation of electrical energy using solar energy through the operation of photovoltaic solar panels.

The electricity generated by the project will be exported to the Indian power grid. The Project Activity will therefore displace a corresponding amount of electricity that would otherwise have been generated by the dominant fossil fuel based electricity grid.
