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.
