We are working with Code REDD, a San-Francisco based NGO whose mission is to “support and scale the REDD+ mechanism to realize its full potential to empower people, preserve forests, protect wildlife, and reduce emissions.”
We are working directly with Tara O’Shea, a Nicholas School Alum. (Her bio below from Code REDD website).
