Nakau is a leader in sustainably financed, indigenous-led ecosystem protection and restoration.
We aim to substantially increase the area of terrestrial and marine ecosystems protected, restored and managed under community-based conservation arrangements, which are financed sustainably and enhance indigenous peoples’ rights and wellbeing, while reducing vulnerability to climate change impacts.
Nakau owns The Nakau Programme; a methodology that provides a set of instructions and guidelines that if followed enable resource owners to manage their forest to produce Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) Units (e.g. carbon credits), which can be sold to generate income to cover the costs of ecosystem protection and enhancement. At the very heart of the Nakau Methodology Framework is a commitment to optimising and sustaining the benefits flowing to indigenous forest owners.
The Nakau Programme is a social purpose business under Australian law, and wholly owned by two charities: Live & Learn International, and Ekos. Contact us.
