Lower Zambezi REDD+ Project Achieves 2nd VCS Verification

25 August 2015

The BCP Team is proud to announce that in August 2015 our Lower Zambezi REDD+ Project has achieved its 2nd verification against the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) for the monitoring period stretching from 2013-2014.

The Lower Zambezi REDD+ Project (LZRP) is the only VCS verified REDD+ project in Africa that we are aware of to achieve two VCS verifications. We are also the 2nd company in Africa to achieve this milestone. It is also the first VCS-verified REDD+ project in Africa to have also achieved “triple gold” level validation against the Climate, Community and Biodiversity Alliance (CCBA) Standard for “exceptional” community benefits.
