THE WORK WE DO
CYNK’s first partner project, Tamuwa, specialises in upcycling agri-waste to produce renewable biomass fuels delivered into a wide cross section of industries across Kenya.
Tamuwa is Kenya’s leading renewable biomass fuels producer enabling the avoidance of millions of tons of carbon emissions and helping accelerate Kenya’s transition to net zero by 2030.
CYNK has partnered with a new project designed to protect and restore forests in East Africa.
Nature-based solutions are needed on a large scale as a way of changing weather patterns, reducing disaster risks, helping planetary adaption to climate change, building community resilience and sequestering carbon from the atmosphere.
CYNK is in the process of partnering in Kenya and East Africa on shoreline restoration projects adapting coastal ecosystems. The projects will grow and restore mangrove forests along East Africa’s Indian Ocean coastline, acting as a blue carbon sink and protecting habitats.
Mangroves sequester carbon at a much faster rate and protect against coastal erosion.
CYNK is partnering with pioneers in regenerative agriculture to reverse land degradation in Africa, leading to higher quality food and improvement of surrounding natural ecosystems. Better scientific understanding of soil and water can sequester carbon at an accelerated rate whilst helping to improve farm yields and reduce water usage levels.
CYNK is exploring partnerships across East Africa for several new projects in this exciting use case where carbon revenues can be directly linked to small holder farmers and local communities.
