Fund webpage

Description of the Project:

Livelihoods Venture created Livelihoods Carbon Fund 1 in 2011 and Livelihoods Carbon Fund 2 in 2017 to leverage the carbon economy to finance ecosystem restoration, agroforestry and rural energy projects to improve food security for rural communities and increase farmers’ revenues. The funds provide upfront financing to project developers for large-scale project implementation and maintenance over periods of 10 to 20 years. Livelihoods Venture is a social business based in Paris, is the initiator of several Livelihoods funds and is the Investment Advisor of LCF3.

In 2021, Livelihoods Venture launched Livelihoods Carbon Fund SICAV-RAIF (LCF3) as a regulated Luxembourg fund with a term of 24 years. LCF3 invests in large-scale natural ecosystem restoration, agroforestry, and rural energy projects in developing countries. LCF3 includes 14 international corporate investors as well as financial investors. LCF3 aims at improving the lives of 2 million people while delivering up to 30 million carbon offsets over the entire duration of the fund.
