FOREST CONSERVATION PROJECTS
The Projects' areas are located in the legal Amazon region where cattle raising, timber, mining, and agriculture are the main economic activities competing with the standing forests.
Legally, landowners would be able to deforest part of the areas for non-sustainable productive models – severely reducing the carbon stocks and potential intake. In addition, given its magnitude, the region is also threatened by illegal activities.
The without-project scenario is forest degradation and deforestation for commodities production as a result of a lack of economic alternatives for forest conservation.
