Jacunda REDD+

Project description

The project area is located in the northeastern part of the state of Rondonia. It covers 94,000 hectares and is mainly covered by primary forests. Based on current development scenarios, the rainforest would disappear in the coming years due to illegal logging and the expansion of pasture and arable land. Intact tropical rainforests, however, are the ecosystem with the highest biodiversity and one of the most significant carbon sinks. The Jacunda project therefore aims to preserve a part of the protected forest and to manage the other areas in a sustainable and long-term manner. This is achieved through selective and sustainable harvesting of wood, the use of non-wood products such as fruit, nuts, oils and medicinal plants as well as the use of innovative agroforestry techniques.
