BioCarbon Partners (BCP), supported through the USAID Community Forests Program (CFP), in partnership with the Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA), and Conservation Lower Zambezi (CLZ), are proud to announce achieving the world’s first carbon neutral national park from operations in Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia.
Every single tourism concessionaire based in Lower Zambezi National Park (NP), participated in this initiative. Even lodges based on the outskirts of the park, funded the carbon neutrality of all the conservation management operations generated by ZAWA and CLZ in 2015. In addition, the operators offset the emissions of tourism lodge concessions in the National Park for the 2015 calendar year. Operators went the further step of offsetting their head offices in Lusaka, Zambia’s Capital.
