South Amazon Forest Protection

Brasilien
project_image_302290.jpg

Brazil has the greatest concentration of biodiversity on the entire planet – its abundant life forms represent 20% of all Earth’s known species. Yet Brazil’s rich Amazonian rainforests still face alarming rates of deforestation – a particular issue for the Southern Amazon, where low governance and encroaching infrastructure leave the area vulnerable to deforestation, primarily from beef cattle ranching and timber harvesting.

Die Lösung

Straddling the border between Brazil’s Amazonas and Acre States, the project comprises a single property, Fazenda Seringal Novo Macapá. It protects a vast swathe of the Southwestern Amazon from deforestation under a sustainable forest management plan (SFMP). Certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), the SFMP is a tool for conservation and forest carbon stock maintenance to reduce deforestation rates.

Die Auswirkungen

As well as reducing emissions through prevented deforestation, the project is registered under the Social Carbon Standard, certifying positive community and environmental impacts. The project activities support social programmes like environmental education for surrounding communities, and there’s a focus on maintaining local traditional culture. There are also economic benefits for the region – the project’s management and industrial activities generate a wealth of employment opportunities for local people.
