Located inside Island of Marajó, in one of the regions with the highest social vulnerability and a very low Human Development Index in Brazil, the Marajó Amazon REDD project actively contributes to the reduction of deforestation, generation of alternative income for local communities and with the sustainable development of the region. In just the first decade of the project, the region had 60% less forest loss than the surrounding area.
In June 2020, the 2nd verification of the Marajó Amazon REDD Project was completed. This means that the project meets all the requirements of the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and can generate carbon credits until 2022 at least.
SDGs met by Marajó Project:
The Marajó Amazon REDD Project has already prevented the deforestation of 3,513 hectares of land, that is, about 37,940,400 m2 of area and, therefore, we have stopped emitting 1,623,272 tCO2e to the atmosphere.
The project provides support to approximately 450 local families and is evaluated according to the social-environmental aspects by the Social Carbon certification standard. Through this methodology, we prove the social-environmental evolution in the following criteria:
The graph below shows the evolution of almost 30% of the social-enviromental indicators that have been monitored, reaching an average score of 3.7 out of 6.
When buying carbon credits of this project you are supporting , sponsoring , financing and making possible the reduction of greenhouse gases and various initiatives in the social scope , environmental and economic as the following:
