making the carbon market work for poor communities


The Fair Climate Network Southern Africa (FCN SA) wants to make the carbon market work for the sustainable development of poor communities. The network facilitates local NGOs to develop pro-poor fair climate projects.

We believe that there is much untapped knowledge and know-how in the region. A network can accommodate higher efficiency and delivery of better services to the poor.
