Description

Project Description

Project area is over 123,000 ha and is constituted by 15 individual Glebas (plots) that contain only forest at the project start date

The project avoids and prevents unplanned deforestation, avoiding emissions of over 9.5 million tCO2e across 40 years

The land is managed in the form of a “private reserve” by monitoring and operating a pre-designed plan which is adapted over time as new information about the forest and the riverine people’s community are gathered and in response to government related policy changes

Sustainability Beyond Carbon

The project has provided the first stage of land tenure processes to over 200 different households in the region

The medium-term goal is to allow forest regeneration by reducing the area of cassava and by focusing on crops that are alternatives with a smaller footprint

It has provided a one-on-one course for agroforestry systems

It has provided energy efficient cookstoves for cooking and cassava production to villagers within and nearby the project boundary

350 more cookstoves will be provided to all riverine people in the project areas

Found in the project zone are two critically endangered primates (Ka’apor Capuchin and Black Bearded Saki) and the endangered Giant Otter

Other threatened mammals include the Giant Anteater, Giant Armadillo and the Oncilla (Leopardus tigrinus).  Many of the bird, amphibian and fish species are endemic to the Eastern Amazon
