The Valparaiso Project is located in the western Brazilian state of Acre. It covers more than 29,000 hectares of tropical rainforest on privately owned land. The project involves reducing emissions from deforestation and degradation by avoiding unplanned deforestation. Project activities include increased monitoring and patrols of the project area, training on agricultural practices and alternative livelihoods, formal recognition of land tenure for those communities living near the project, and other targeted social assistance.
TerraCarbon provided technical support to CarbonCo on this project including feasibility assessment, project design (including design and oversight of forest carbon inventory and baseline modeling), and monitoring of emissions reductions.
