This project avoids the deforestation of the biologically diverse Choco-Darien bioregion located in Colombia. Forests in the project area are important both nationally and internationally for the ecosystem services they provide. Nevertheless, the forests are particularly vulnerable to illegal logging, which has dramatically reduced biomass in the region. Thus, the focus of the REDD+ project has been to address the issue of illegal timber extraction and other pressures on the forests.
This project involves constructing a system for the catalytics reduction of nitrous oxide (N2O). N2O is an unwanted by-product of nitric acid manufacturing, produced during the catalytic oxidation of ammonia in the air over noble metal gauzes. Project activity helps to significantly reduce N2O emissions, as with no abatement measures N2O is emitted into the atmosphere
This project aims to protect up to 200,000 ha of tropical rainforest in the Brazilian State of Acre. Conservation of the forest will mitigate the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, with the project aiming to generate greenhouse gas emission reductions of around 12.6 million tCO2e over the first 10 years. The large-scale project will protect the rich biodiversity and ecosystem services of the area. In addition, it seeks to generate opportunities for the local comunities to improve livelihoods.
This project focuses on protecting private grasslands from conversion to cultivated cropland. The project activities are located in North Dakota Prairie Pothole Region, an area that provides a key habitat for a diverse range of flora and fauna. To prevent conversion and retain carbon pools, the project contacted landowners in the Pothole Region with the aim of introducing them to the carbon program.
This project protects and restores 149,800 ha of peatland ecosystems in the Central Kalimantan Province. The project area covers one of Indonesia's largest peat swamp forests, aiming to reduce deforestation and degradation, implement habitat and ecosystem restoration, biodiversity conversation and increase economic opportunities for the local community. Restoration efforts are expected to avoid an annual 7,451,847 tCO2e in greenhouse gas emissions
