Mozambique Reforestation

What is Carbon Removal?

Carbon removal is the elimination of existing carbon emissions from the atmosphere. Trees are without a doubt the best carbon removal technology in the world. When they perform photosynthesis, they pull carbon dioxide out of the air, bind it up in sugar, and release oxygen. Trees use sugar to build wood, branches, and roots. Wood is an incredible carbon sink because it is mostly made of carbon (about 50%), it lasts for years as a standing tree, and takes years to break down after the tree dies. While trees mainly store carbon, they also release some carbon, such as when their leaves decompose, or their roots burn sugar to capture nutrients and water.

About this Project


Since the 1970s, Mozambique has witnessed the loss of 8 million hectares of forests, an area equivalent to the size of Portugal. This rapid deforestation, equivalent to losing 1000 football fields every day, poses significant threats to the country's biodiversity, which includes 20 endangered bird species and over 200 native mammal species. Furthermore, with more than 45% of the population living below the poverty line, who are heavily reliant on local biodiversity for survival, this loss of natural resources exacerbates their challenges.

Project Outcome

Furthr, in collaboration with Eden Reforestation Projects, is actively working towards reforestation efforts across multiple inland and coastal mangrove locations in the southern region of the country. These initiatives not only help restoring habitats for endangered wildlife, but they also create job opportunities for local communities.
