Evergreen

Protecting the biodiversity of the Amazon

in one of the areas most affected by deforestation

THE LOCATION

The Story

The Evergreen REDD+ Project is located at Fazenda Alvorada, in the municipality of Apuí in Amazonas, Brazil, in the region with the tenth highest deforestation rate in Brazil. The region has suffered from intense deforestation caused by logging and other illegal activities that occur in the region.

The region is home to one of the richest areas of biodiversity in the world, 10% of the planet's ecological diversity is found in the region where the project is developed.

The project aims to protect over 71.289 Hectares of forest and train and engage the community in forest management and sustainable practises.

Summary 

The evergreen project is located in the municipality with the tenth highest deforestation rate in the Amazon biome in 2021. called Apui, Amazonas. The project consists of 130.632.6 hecates total project area of protected amazon rainforest

the present REDD project is predicted to avoid 58,881.40 hectares of deforestation, equating to 24,652,524 tCO2e in emissions reductions over the 30- year project lifetime (25th November 2020 to 24th November 2050), including buffer (RF), leakage (DLF) and project efficiency (EI) reductions.

Brazil is considered the main nation among the 17 countries with the highest biodiversity levels globally. It contains over 70% of the planet’s biodiversity.
The region is characterized by high biodiversity level because it is contact region betwen two biomes, which are in constant risk due to the proximity to the Brazilian arc of deforestation meanwhiile, very little is known about the region’s biological diversity species ( WWF, Brazil 2014)

10% of all the planet’s biodiversity is found in the project region, including many threatened species and those which exist only in Amazonia, or endemic species

Summary

The procedures and guidelines of the project aim to  achieve not only environmental benefits but also social ones.
The commitment regards health, education and training.
Concerning health aspects, there will be an improve of the number of supervisor in the field to assure health and security moreover the community will be advised on nutritional aspects.

Education & Training

Technical Training on Sustainable Cattle Raising with the objective of qualifying labour that finds little opportunity to work in the region and ends up taking part in illegal settlements and land occupation. This will benefit 15 students every year. Students and technicians of both sexes will be eligible for registrations, with the previous requirement of having finished the basic studies (middle school).
Sustainable Forest management courses: Courses on forest management methods and training on sustainable wild harvesting will be offered to the internal workers for updating on techniques and practices and to train new employees.
The project promotes also new sources of income for those interested in being trained to carry out local monitoring.

Outlook

Summary

The project is registered under the The VCS Program that is the world’s most widely used voluntary GHG program. Thanks to it already more than 966 million tonnes of carbon and other GHG emissions have been removed from the atmosphere. The vcs works constantly to to ensure the credibility of emission reduction projects and provide you with the most trustful carbon credits.
The project started in 25/11/2020 until  24/11/2050 and will take place for 30 years the lenght of the projects will ensure the efficacy of the absorption and deforestation in the long term through the carbon credits.
No extreme weather conditions have been registered although over 25 years, 227.395 hectares have been burned which represent 4,5% of the forest in Apui

Monitoring Plan 

Surveillance activities designed to mitigate illegal logging and land occupation in the area will be achieved through the Evergreen REDD+ Project

This process will be further consolidated through combined efforts with private and governmental entities, and NGOs.
In this context, the project proponent will lead to political mobilization of the regional forest sector and continue to reinforce the engagement of all sectors involved in deforestation issues, in the long term.
Evergreen is already the proponent’s third REDD activity in the region, further areas with potential for REDD projects have already been identified around the project site, which will promote and encourage forest conservation through financial incentives obtained from credit sales and provide social and environmental benefits to local communities.
