This is the first project in DRC to benefit from global trade in emission reductions under the Clean Development Mechanism—a market-based approach that allows countries which have ratified the Kyoto Protocol to purchase carbon credits from each other, reducing greenhouse gases in the atmosphere to slow global warming.
