About the project
The objective is to mitigate climate change, protect biodiversity and generate sources of income for local communities through forest governance, capacity building and productive activities that will prevent selective logging of native forests, avoiding degradation and deforestation. Located in the south of Chocó, Pacific coast of Colombia.
Located in the south of Chocó, Pacific coast of Colombia, this project called “SIVIRÚ-USARAGÁ-PIZARRO-PILIZÁ(SUPP) REDD+” is estimated to generate approximately 7,705,437 VCUs over 30 years. The forests in the area are important nationally and internationally for the ecosystem services they provide. Forests in the project area have experienced a steady decline in biomass due largely to illegal logging.
