Overall comment

Overall comment
Project to offset emissions of 600 MW coal fired power station in Netherlands. Benet claim that they have always lived on land which has since been turned into a forest. Ugandan wildlife authority claims benet have encroached on the forest land. Despite the park’s ecological value, deforestation and historic consumptive use of the park have contributed to significant deterioration of KNP’s forest and its biodiversity over the past 30 years. Face the Future has been working with the Ugandan Wildlife Authority (UWA) since the early 90’s to reforest approximately 10.000 ha inside the park, aiming to protect and restore biodiversity, increase carbon stocks and sustain the park’s overall vital ecological functions. So far, 3.500 hectares have been successfully restored. The carbon benefits of the project are validated and verified against the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), resulting in high quality carbon credits.
