Trees for Global Benefit: Empowering Ugandan Women with Land Concessions and Tree Planting Benefits: A local-level, implementation initiative

Trees for Global Benefit (TGB), an initiative of the Environmental Conservation Trust of Uganda (ECOTRUST), is a cooperative community carbon offset scheme developed to enable poverty reduction through effective management and protection of forestry ecosystems on which local people depend. TGB seeks to reduce unsustainable exploitation of forest resources and the decline of ecosystem quality, while diversifying and increasing incomes for rural farm families. This is most often achieved through Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES), decreasing unsustainable pressure on natural resources, reducing CO2 emissions, and building community resiliency. Small-scale landholders in rural areas have been involved in tree planting activities since TGB’s inception in 2002.
