The project was also the  2nd afforestation and reforestation (A/R) large scale CDM project to be issued with carbon credits (tCERs) in Africa. Carbon credits have been sold to the Swedish Energy Agency (SEA) in what is known as the world’s longest carbon transaction in afforestation/reforestation.

The overall objective is to contribute to mitigating climate change while meeting the growing demand for quality wood products from well managed plantation forests and contributing to sustainable environmental management, community development and poverty alleviation in Uganda.
