The primary objective of the ABC Norte REDD Project is to prevent unplanned deforestation (AUD) within the 140.432 ha project area, which consists entirely of Amazon rainforest.

In addition to contributing to the long-term conservation of the region, this project also aims to establish a barrier against the expansion of the Brazilian Arc of Deforestation, creating a Northeast Amazon biodiversity corridor in a vulnerable region.

Beyond conservation efforts, the project proponent has committed to maintaining a Sustainable Forest Management Plan (SFMP) in ‘Fazenda Pacajá’ by investing in certified reduced impact logging.

Furthermore, the project proponent has also chosen to prioritize the enhancement of education, medical care, and other social activities benefiting the local community, alongside efforts to improve deforestation control.

A project to conserve and
protect the forest and its biodiversity

Biodiversity

We contribute to the conservation of one of the planet’s largest carbon sinks – the Amazon Rainforest.

Socio-Environmental

In 2022, 960 kilograms of poultry feed, 300 kilograms of fish feed, 150 educational kits, and 200 toys were donated to the communities, while 100 individuals received medical and dental care, and 277 people received routine vaccinations.

Sustainable Development

The project offers workshops, lectures and education for the local communities, as well as trainings for other alternative sources of income, such as pisciculture, agroforestry and poultry farming.

In order to address the challenges of the project region and our goal of forest conservation and preservation of local wildlife, we work to replace the causes of deforestation and degradation through actions focused on the needs of local villages, including: intensifying and diversifying agriculture through the introduction of new technologies and farming practices, increasing access to quality education, improving public health practices, and promoting sustainable economic development for the inhabitants.
