Kariba REDD+ Project

CGA's "Kariba REDD+ Project" involves the preservation of a vast and vital ecosystem surrounding the southern shorelines of Lake Kariba and its surrounding forests and communities.

Agricultural Encroachment on Forest

Due to poor resources and knowledge, communities are cutting down vast tracts of forest in order to clear fields to plant their staple crops such as maize, sorghum etc.

Forest Fires

Forest fires are a major driver behind decreasing biomass density and deforestation. Forest fires are a natural phenomenon that cannot be prevented entirely, however they can be controlled to a large degree.


Wood Poaching

Much deforestation is caused by causal logging activities within the communities, much of which is used as fire- wood for cooking and heating purposes.
