Fortaleza Ituxi Project – Amazon Rainforest Brazil$10.53 (USD) per tonne
- Type: Avoided Deforestation
- Location: Lábrea, Amazonas, Brazil
- Vintage: 2013-15
- Estimated reductions: 4,267,919 tonnes CO2-e per year
This project aims to protect forests in the Municipality of Lábrea, a region of the Amazon Biome with one of the highest rates of deforestation.
Damage has been caused to ecosystems through the expansion of agriculture and cattle ranching and the close proximity to roads places the unique biodiversity under even greater pressure.
The privately-owned land is under threat from professional land-grabbers and illegal occupation, requiring the Project Area to have improved surveillance for the forest to continue to be protected. Additional financial streams for land management will also be created under the project activities to protect the land from a plausible sale to private investors.
