Presented by

Gerald Prolman, President at Everland

About this talk

Harnessing the Financial Industry to fight the effect of Climate Change - Webinar #1 by BNP Paribas. The objective of the webinar is to highlight a concrete example of how carbon offsetting is achieved through the Kasigau REDD+ project in Kenya and how it triggers economic and social impact in its community. Gerald is President of Everland, a company recently launched by Wildlife Works, an entity representing an established group of high-impact forest conservation projects in Africa, Asia and Latin America that have successfully stopped deforestation by applying REDD+, a performance-based mechanism to conserve highly threatened forests. REDD+ is an acronym for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation, a UN-envisioned Climate Change mitigation strategy designed to protect forests that would otherwise be destroyed and thereby avoid the release of CO2 emissions that harm the environment.
