Impact

Deforestation attributes to about 20% of global warming, reducing the Earth’s capacity to absorb carbon dioxide. The activities implemented by the developer of this project will benefit the climate, community and biodiversity.

This project will conserve over 100,000 hectares of rainforest in the Tahuamanu Province of Peru, a region that contains one of the greatest biodiversity hotspots – Ecological Corridor Vilcabamba-Amboró.

Protecting the rainforest from transient farmers and illegal logging will protect the habitats of numerous animal and plant species, of which at least 35 have been identified as endangered. Indigenous communities will be supported and their cultures preserved.

Members of the nearby communities will have the opportunity to attend workshops offered in security as well as technical training on sustainable agriculture and forest management.
