The Awacachi Corridor is a key strategic site that along with adjoining areas reinforces the conservation of over , hectares of unique rainforest. Working with local partners, Cool Earth is helping to secure this corridor of land by investing in its protection system and in local community development that values forest conservation above forest destruction.
The project is in the Awacachi corridor, which connects two national parks. The project could not be found on Cool Earth website. The Ecuadorean Amazon Region is suffering from widespread deforestation. The 30, hectares of forest in the project area belong to three Kichwas or Quechuas communities.
Each community has divided their land into small farms, managed by the family that inhabits them. Every farm consists of a patch of agricultural land and a patch of primary forest. This primary forest is degrading as a result of selective harvesting of trees in the region. This project aims to avoid deforestation and enhance carbon stocks through the implementation of improved agricultural and agro forestry techniques as well promoting sustainable forest management.
The resulting avoided deforestation will translate into carbon revenues, which, in turn, will provide an alternative source of income for the Kichwas communities. Focus on generating and selling carbon credits to provide alternate source of income for Kichwas communities. With the current market conditions the project is unfortunately not feasible.

In exchange, the Ecuador government proposed that the international community make a financial contribution equivalent to half of the profits that would be generated if the country did indeed exploit these oil reserves. In August the president of Ecuador announced the cancellation of the project due to insufficient financial contributions from the international community.
The Socio Bosque Program that began in Sept is an initiative of the Ministry of the Environment of Ecuador MAE that offers economic incentives to owners of land with native forests to guarantee its protection over the medium to long-term. The Program gives priority to areas with a rapid dynamic of land use change, areas that are critical for the maintenance of ecosystem processes that generate benefits for society and areas with a high incidence of poverty.
The three objectives of the Program are: - Conserve native forests and other native ecosystems to protect their tremendous ecological, economic, cultural and spiritual values. The goal is to conserve 4 million ha of forest and other native ecosystems over the next seven years. The SBP consists of direct payments for each hectare of native forest or other native vegetation conserved per year; payments are made annually for a period of 20 years once a conservation agreement is signed between the owner and the MAE.
This program is really payments for forest conservation, and does not involve the calculation of carbon emission reductions or the sale of carbon credits. The project is located in an area of natural forests and foresees, along with forest conservation, the recovery of deforested areas, reforestation, measures to control forest fires and the implementation of other sources of sustainable income generation for the surrounding populations. The main objective is to conserve forests and enable forest recovery in degraded areas.
Project seems only planned - no further information. As of June , according to forestcarbonportal. The project status is changed from planned to cannot be confirmed, see comment for detail. This project will reforest at least hectares of degraded pasture land in the western foothills of Ecuador. A joint venture between Conservation International, the Maquipucuna Foundation, and a group of partners, this project will also plant a mixture of 15 native tree species on former ranch lands and reconnect existing forests.
This project employs local community members for seed collection, nursery establishment, planting, and maintenance. The reforested sites will provide additional income from activities tied to healthy forests, such as ecotourism, and help protect clean water supplies and reduce water-borne diseases. In the long run, replanting forests will create structural and microclimatic conditions that could expand habitat for native plants and animals.
Connecting fragmented habitats into a conservation corridor is critical for species whose survival depends on large expanses of contiguous forest. None on actual project land, as the land is owned by two private conservation foundations. Two sites in the coastal plain and western foothills of northwestern Ecuador.

The purpose of the project is to reforest a portion of the land owned by farmers and 3 communal areas covering an area of ha and the implementation of 70 ha of silvipastoral systems on land of the same farmers. The proposed activity adds to sustainable development by introducing an integrated farming system aiming at efficient land use practices on the entire farm, considering current and future needs of the farmer family.
Sustainable crop and timber production will generate income in the short, mid, and long term. The project adds to sustainable development by introducing an integrated farming system and by helping communities to generate revenues from their activities. The project was certified as CM in , then decided to shift to the voluntary carbon market. It obtained Plan Vivo certification in The project will be executed as part of a portfolio of small-scale projects one of eight in the Cochabamba Tropics, intending to reforest ha on farm land, i.
Some of these areas include national parks in which people have 'invaded'. The project implements activities such as fire prevention, biodiversity monitoring, and supporting income generating activities such as community forestry and microenterprise. Investments from three energy companies helped to fund project activities, in exchange for rights to a share of the verified carbon benefits generated by NK- CAP.
The project led to the inclusion of ha surrounding the national park into the official boundaries of the Park. This more than doubled the size of the Park; Prior to project initiation, none of the communities bordering the park had property rights to the land on which they had historically resided. The goal of Protection of the Bolivian Amazon Forest is to protect the property as a carbon sink, maintain the biodiversity values of the property, and enhance the local economic environment with sustainable livelihoods.

Agroforestry and forest restoration for ecological connectivity, poverty reduction and biodiversity conservation in Cerro San Gil, Caribbean Guatemala.
The Project will establish 4, hectares of Agroforestry Systems and Forest Plantations in community lands surrounding the remaining rainforests of this key protected area in Caribbean Guatemala, between the international Borders of Belize and Honduras; these forests are a vital link in the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor and the caribbean migratory funnel of Central America.
The remaining forests of this region are truly biodiversity treasures: phenomena of isolation and differentiated evolution took place in the coastal mountains of this region, which explains their amazing biological diversity and endemism. Although very close in distance, these forests present assemblages of biodiversity and endemic species that differentiate them. TThis project is implemented on degraded grasslands and croplands with three main objectives: ecological connectivity, poverty reduction and biodiversity conservation.
As of august, Livelihoods website not working. Could not find further information about the project.
