About the project.

Located in the municipality of Ipixuna, among one of the 50 most deforested municipalities in Brazil, Project Seringueira protects over 18k hectares from planned and unplanned development. In addition to real climate benefits, the project upholds the CCB pillars of community and biodiversity through capacity building amongst local populations and critical habitat conservation for endangered and at-risk species.

The result is high-integrity, Brazil REDD+ carbon credits generated through community consideration and empowerment alongside improved land-use stewardship and increased climate resilience.

We Support Biodiversity

Thirteen globally-recognized endangered species will benefit from reduced threats because of project activities.

We Support Access to Education

Specialized partners provide local communities with training focused on sustainable extraction of non-timber forest products, financial and administrative education, and entrepreneurship.

We Support Continued Conservation

Inspection measures and activities promote continued conservation and protection of land with biological importance in an area with a history of deforestation.

About the land.

Project Seringueira is located in an area qualifying as a Key Biodiversity Area (KBA), in the southwest portion of the municipality of Ipixuma in the State of Amazonas, with main access to the project area made via river transport along the Juruá River. Considered an important tributary of the Amazon hydrographic basin, the Juruá River rises in Peru and runs through the states of Acre and Amazonas for a length of 3,280 km until it flows into the Solimões River.

Project Seringueira is also located near Conservation Units (or Protected Areas) of Sustainable Use, which aim to make nature conservation compatible with the sustainable use of natural resources. The Ministry of Environment classifies the overlapping zones of the project areas as being of High and Extremely High biological importance.

About the community.

Seven communities, Campinas, Deus é por Nós, Açaituba, Porto Mappes, Igarapé Tigre, São José, and São Luiz, are expected to benefit as a result of project activities, including improved livelihood and income generation, quality education and improved health services, as well as improved access to quality drinking water. 

As part of Project Seringueira’s commitment to local populations, baseline indicators for community livelihoods considering human, social, environmental, physical, and financial factors have been established and will be monitored throughout the project’s lifetime to ensure ongoing, positive impact.

This project adheres to VCS Methodology VM0007, which covers the reduction of emissions resulting from planned and/or unplanned deforestation and forest degradation (REDD). This methodology applies to forest lands, forested wetlands, forested peatlands and tidal wetlands that would be deforested or degraded in the absence of the project activity.

Annual monitoring of forest cover through forest inventories and satellite images, along with periodic monitoring of endangered species will be conducted to ensure project objectives are being met and project benefits are realized.

Systematic monitoring will be implemented in the project area, including river and land patrols as well as satellite surveillance with up-to-date images of the project area.

Verra was founded in 2007 by environmental and business leaders who saw the need for greater quality assurance in voluntary carbon markets. We now manage the world’s leading voluntary carbon markets program, the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) Program, as well as a suite of other programs, incubate new ideas to generate meaningful environmental and social value at scale, and advance the use of these programs worldwide.
