Meet The Team


what are grazing coordinators?

Grazing coordinators are the community face of carbon projects. They are the conduit by which community members learn about project specifics and developments, and they help share the overall vision and long-term goals. The coordinators have extensive knowledge of grazing practices and boundaries and are able to work directly with different community members, build trust and relationships, and generate excitement for a project requiring extensive community participation.​ 



CarbonSolve and Soils for the Future Africa have launched a 1.5 million hectare soil carbon project in the Kajiado District of Kenya’s southern rangelands region. The goal of CarbonSolve’s Kenya investment in the Kajiado District is to advance rangeland carbon projects and create a sustainable financing mechanism that will support decades of rangeland restoration efforts for priority project areas. 


The KRCP is operated and managed by SftFA,  based in Kenya and headquartered in the project area. This project is supported by CarbonSolve, a US-based Carbon Project Developer that includes Mark Ritchie as a co-owner, and will build from the financial and administrative systems of the Biodiversity Research Institute (BRI), a 501c(3) non-profit conservation organization based in the U.S. In this way, CarbonSolve will help develop the capacity of for-profit companies in Africa to meet the highest Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) standards.
