The Ecompuà Comapuà Amazon REDD Project consists of 86,000 hectares virgin Amazon rainforest. The deforestation rate here is 0.82 ha/year, and the area is home of 130 river-dwelling or ‘ribeirinho” families.
This project helps mitigate widespread illegal logging and “slash and burn” practices. We help communities to generate sustainable income, and develop and procure the organic certification of non-timber forest production chains.
The Verified Carbon Standard, one of the leading standards for carbon offsetting, is used. Biodiversity, social and other “co-benefits” are monitored using the Social Carbon Standard.
