Introduction to the Livelihoods Fund

The Livelihoods Fund works by using the carbon absorption capacity of ecosystems, such as mangrove wetlands, to finance economic development of village communities through the restoration of these environments. As an investment fund, the Livelihoods Fund is made up of companies that are committed to combating climate change by reducing the carbon emissions caused by their activities, through voluntary offsets. Livelihoods projects benefit the companies through carbon footprint reduction, social and environmental innovation, and showing their commitment to the environment. www.livelihoods.eu
