The Lower Zambezi REDD+ Project (LZRP) is the first VCS-verified REDD+ project in Sub-Saharan Africa to have also achieved “triple gold” level validation against the Climate, Community and Biodiversity Alliance (CCBA) Standard— this is the first project to have achieved gold level validation for “exceptional” positive impacts to local community stakeholders.
