Mycorrhizal Forestry in Chile

This project is planting three commercially important tree species in Chile, which are inoculated with local mycorrhizal fungi that aid their growth. Over 6,000 hectares have been planted, stabilising soil, reducing flood and erosion risk, and providing an income for the landowners when the trees are harvested.

Yuqing and Wenchang Household Biogas

This project supports farmers to build and maintain a household biogas digester in Yuqing (Guizhou province) and Wenchang (Hainan province) counties. Families reduce expenditure on fuel by 40%, whilst improving sanitation for them and their livestock. It also enables long-term access to a source of renewable, clean fuel for cooking and heating – replacing emissions-intense coal. Additionally, the project uses the income from carbon finance to support a network of service stations that provide technical support to households, creating sustainable, long-term jobs.

14Trees sustainable building in Malawi

This project seeks to introduce and promote the manufacture, distribution and use of stabilised soil bricks (SSBs) across Malawi.

Unlike traditional clay bricks, these do not require firing, meaning reduced emissions and deforestation, and biodiversity is protected.

Bondhu Chula stoves in Bangladesh

The Bondhu Chula, which loosely translates as the ‘friendly stove’, has a combustion chamber that is designed to ensure a more efficient burn – reducing fuel use – and a chimney that takes harmful pollutants out of the house – reducing indoor air pollution.
