About Nakau

Nakau grows ethical and sustainable ecosystem carbon projects that are led by Indigenous landowners and communities across the Pacific Islands.

Behind our work is a vision for healthy nature and strong communities. We believe protecting and restoring forests and other ecosystems is inseparable from the need to support the people who depend on them.


    We ensure Indigenous communities retain rights and power over their land, and maximise benefits for everyone.


    We help people protect and restore their ecosystems and build nature-based resilience to climate change.


    We support equitable conservation carbon projects that deliver measurable and effective core benefits.


Nakau is a team of technical specialists, ecologists and community development practitioners. Our work is informed by a social justice lens and human rights framework.

Our teams extends to our partners across the Pacific Islands region. Together, we deliver high-integrity carbon and nature projects supported by the Nakau Methodology.
