We are growing and facilitating the planting of one million trees per year for three years. Totalling three million, these will include shade and fruit trees on community-owned land, and a diversity of indigenous species towards an existing protected area, providing a biodiversity buffer.
The Congo Basin of which Cameroon is a part of loses 11 million hectares of forest cover every year. DGB’s project partner, Green Zone Ltd, has significant experience in the agri and agroforestry sector in Cameroon. They have the required local knowledge, position in the community and on-the-ground capability to rapidly reforest large swathes of degraded land.
This kind of projects, provides habitat for forested areas that cover four-fifths of terrestrial biodiversity, filters water and improves the quality of life of communities.
Replanting trees projects, basically helps to sequester carbon from the atmosphere by fixing carbon dioxide in the soil, the roots, the trunk and the leaves.

Investing in nature supports human, animal and planetary health, improves quality of life, and creates jobs. Developing and scaling up revenue flows from ecosystem services and using blended finance models as a means to crowd in private capital are among the suite of solutions needed to make this happen.
Green Zone Ltd, has significant experience in the agri and agroforestry sector in Cameroon. They have the required local knowledge, position in the community and on-the-ground capability to rapidly reforest large swathes of degraded land. Their role will be the day-to-day implementation of the project methodology.
We combine the data from a dense network of on the ground sensors, aerial drones and geostationary and orbital satellites, along with machine learning models trained on historical data. This enables DutchGreen to perform extremely high resolution data collection so it can monitor biodiversity, native species of plants, insects, mammals and birds, seasonal migrations and identify critical changes alongside predictions of future activity.
We are a project developer of high quality large-scale carbon and biodiversity projects accredited by third-parties.
We’re striving to safeguard the natural world, helping people live more sustainably and take action against deforestation and desertification.
