Nakau works with customary landowners and Indigenous communities across the Pacific Islands to protect and restore forests and other ecosystems through carbon and nature projects.
We partner with local NGOs and governments, and work within local governance systems to ensure all projects are owned by the customary landholders.
Our Nakau Methodology supports people to protect and restore their natural environment in a way that also supports their right to a sustainable future.

Nakau is developing new projects in collaboration with local partners and communities in Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Samoa and Papua New Guinea.
