New Leaf Africa (NLA), a team of leaders in conservation, technology, population health and renewable energy, has engaged ecoPartners to consult on its REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation) campaign in the Republic of Guinea. New Leaf Africa will use value from REDD credits to deliver health, education and agricultural intensification projects to local communities.

Deforestation in the Republic of Guinea is occurring alarmingly quickly. According to recent data from the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization, the country is losing its forest at the rate of 36,000 ha/year, an area equivalent to 1/3 the size of Hong Kong. The Republic of Guinea is rich in its biodiversity, providing habitat to significant chimpanzee populations and many endemic bird species. Unfortunately only 25% of its forests remain. President Conde and the new democratically elected administration are committed to reversing this trend.

New Leaf Africa has been awarded the responsibility of working with the Ministry of Environment, Water and Forests and community committees throughout Guinea to develop a nationwide land management strategy. New Leaf Africa has chosen ecoPartners to catalyze the nation’s efforts to develop a comprehensive plan for land management and conservation, following the frameworks in the UNFCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) and the VCS (Verified Carbon Standard) for reducing the greenhouse gas emissions that result from deforestation. “We are pleased that ecoPartners has agreed to help develop this important initiative,” states Al Babbington, a founder of New Leaf Africa. “They are clearly the global experts in this area.”

ecoPartners works around the globe with leading project developers, landowners, verification bodies, NGOs and other stakeholders to protect the world’s forests and empower communities that depend on forests for their livelihoods. ecoPartners’ extensive experience provides the foresight and cost efficiencies necessary for such an ambitious undertaking.

“During these key steps in a transition to democracy in Guinea, New Leaf Africa (NLA) has a rare opportunity to foster dramatic social and environmental progress with Guinea’s people and government, and we are pleased to contribute to this vision,” states Benjamin Caldwell, Vice President of ecoPartners.
