The Members reaffirm their commitment to conserve the Gola Rainforest and support the sustainable development of local communities. The local communities are represented by a Paramount Chief who sits as one of four Directors to the non-profit company limited by guarantee.
This partnership is proud of what it’s achieving for the Gola forest and the neighbouring communities.
The Gola REDD project is the first project of its kind in Sierra Leone and West Africa. It was recently independently audited by a third party who concluded its outstanding benefits to biodiversity, livelihoods and climate change adaptation. It will trade carbon on the voluntary market to try to ensure Gola’s operational costs are covered to safeguard it for the generations to come.
