“A funny place to store carbon: UWA-FACE Foundation’s tree planting project in Mount Elgon National Park, Uganda”, by Chris Lang and Timothy Byakola, documents human rights abuses at Mount Elgon National Park in east Uganda, where the Dutch FACE Foundation has been planting carbon ‘offset’ trees since 1994. The report exposes how villagers living along the boundary of the park have been beaten and shot at, have been barred from their land and have seen their livestock confiscated by armed park rangers guarding the ‘carbon trees’ inside the National Park.
