THE LOCATION

The Story


The Envira REDD+ project takes places in the region of Feijó, in the far west of Acre, on the Envira, Jurupari and Purus rivers.
The main objectives of the project are various and its impact is extremely positive both on the environment and on the communities living there. Firstly, it focuses on forest conservation and promotion of sustainable livelihood methods that mitigate the exploitation of forest resources, secondly they aim to promote opportunities for better quality sustainable lives for the communities while preserving biodiversity and contributing to climate action. 
The valorization of the forest and the preservation of the existing biomes and ecosystems in the project area is crucial for the planet, giving the communities who survive in these forest the hope of better days.

Summary 

The project protects up to 200,000 hectares of tropical rainforest
The ultimate activities are to guarantee a forest carbon inventory, model regional deforestation and land-use patterns, and mitigate deforestation pressures, along with ongoing monitoring of the climate and biodiversity impacts of the project.
Together with the environment the communities are beginning patrols of potential deforestation sites in the early stages of the project while granting land tenure.

The Envira project is preserving a globally important site for biodiversity
that has been identified as a key biodiversity area due to the endemic and IUCN Red list species that includes 35 birds species of which 7 endemic and nearly threatened.
The two main plant trigger species are
Rinorea longistipulata  and Cedrela odorata.
The 7 endemic and nearly threatened species include:

Pyrrhura rupicola

Simoxenops ucayalae

Synallaxis cherriei

Percnostola lophotes

Nannopsittaca dachilleae

Formicarius rufifrons

Crypturellus atrocapillus

Summary

The project helps neglected populations who deserve better living conditions by giving them sustainable employment, access to healthcare and medicines.
Meanwhile it facilitates education by promoting it for the children of the area, training them for the cultivation and sales of products that come from the land which are extracted using solely methods which have a low environmental impact

Social Benefits

Building the community health center to mitigate potential increases in mosquito-borne illnesses;
Ensuring agricultural extension courses incorporating climate change adaptation techniques;
Assisting local families with access to markets for their products to overcome increased difficulty in transportation networks;
Locating facilities such as the headquarters and health centers further away from river banks to minimize risk of flooding.
Establishing alternative economic activities including commercializing the collection of medicinal plants and açaí.

Outlook

Summary

The Project is being collectively governed by JR Agropecuária e Empreendimentos EIRELI, Carbon Securities and CarbonCo.
Their primary responsabilities are for the implementation of the local social projects and programs.
To empower the local communities, JR Agropecuária e Empreendimentos EIRELI will establish sub-divisions for the açaí, rubber and medicinal plant projects throughout the Project Zone.

Monitoring Plan 

The Project Proponents intend to monitor deforestation by boat along the Envira, Jurupari and Purus Rivers as well as from the State of Acre’s satellite imagery.
Developing a climate monitoring plan and monitoring deforestation has helped in achieving the climate, community and biodiversity objectives. Hence, the climate monitoring plan and monitoring of deforestation resulted in net GHG emission reductions because such activities provide an early detection of deforestation, while enabling the identification of the individual drivers of deforestation and to implement the right actions to mitigate such deforestation and consequent release of GHG emissions.
