The Ecomapuá Amazon REDD Project is located on Marajó Island, Pará State, in Brazil’s Eastern Amazon region. The Marajó várzea is a critically valuable ecosystem, adding to the importance of the present project. The primary objective of the project is to avoid the unplanned deforestation (AUD) of an 86,269.84ha area within a private property owned by Ecomapuá Conservação Ltda. The present project will achieve predicted net reductions of 4,253.14ha of deforestation, and 2,170,138 tCO2e emissions over the 30 year project lifetime (01/01/2003 – 31/12/2032). Furthermore, a proportion of the carbon credits generated will be dedicated to improving social and environmental conditions for local communities. Marajó Island is classified as “extremely high” priority for preservation by the Brazilian Environment Ministry (“MMA”), consequently the Ecomapuá Amazon REDD Project contributes to National conservation goals and encourages further conservation efforts in and around this critical region.
