The Green Valley Grouped REDD+ Project (“Green Valley Project” or “Project”) is in a unique biodiversity corridor in the Amazon Rainforest which spans over 10.527 hectares and contains some of the highest biomass forests in the so called arc of deflorestation.

The Project region has been particularly affected by the expansion of agricultural and livestock activities, creating this arc of deforestation of the south of the Amazon biome, in which land is cleared for cattle ranching, small-scale subsistence farming, logging, and, increasingly, soybean production and others.

This Project creates a strategic barrier against the encroachment of deforestation, creating the conditions to preserve and improved land use and thus slow forest loss caused by the agriculture expansion, preserving the rich Amazonian biodiversity.

A project to conserve and
protect the forest and its biodiversity

Biodiversity

The proponent intends to establish partnerships with universities, such as UNEMAT – ‘Universidade Estadual de Mato Grosso’ to further develop studies that will support the conservation of the endangered species.

Socio-Environmental

The Project supports the Farmers’ Cooperative of “Vale do Amanhecer,” actively involving women to promote gender equality. It also expands opportunities in the Brazilian nut industry, developing a new productive chain in the region.

Sustainable Development

Initiating positive change, the Project actively promotes sports among children in nearby communities. By intentionally emphasizing sports and physical activities, the project aims to foster healthy communities and empower individuals to reach their full potential.

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.
