Project description:

The main objective of the Envira Amazonia REDD Project is the conservation of the tropical forest in the project region. The primary project activity, is voluntarily foregoing the clearing of the project area and conversion of the land to a large-scale cattle ranch.

The Envira Amazonia Project will further mitigate deforestation in the region by mitigating deforestation pressures using a combination of environmental programs and social programs which are intended to improve the livelihoods of community members living in the vicinity of the project area. Social projects and programs for the local communities, will not only generate sustainable economic opportunities, but will also result in a reduction in deforestation in the region and the preservation of biodiversity.

‍

Furthermore, the Envira Amazonia Project will simultaneously preserve rich biodiversity and a wide range of ecosystem services, provide direct benefits to local communities, and mitigate the release of ~12.6 million metric tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions over the first 10 years of the Project.

CCB status
