PROTECTION OF ANTIOQUIA'S BIODIVERSITY
REDD+ ECOSYSTEM INFRASTRUCTURE FOR FARMERS IN ANTIOQUIA, COLOMBIA
Ecosystem Infrastructure REDD+ is a climate change mitigation project (PMCC) that aims to conserve and reforest an area of 120,464 hectares in the north-western region of the department of Antioquia.
This project cooperates with local communities in 7 different municipalities of Antioquía:
How does the project contribute to the area?
The development of the REDD+ Ecosystem Infrastructure for farmers in Antioquia, Colombia, aims to:
The project and the community
This REDD+ project directly involves local communities through the owners of the private land on which it is developed. Civil society associations ADEMUR, TEO-OCCIDENTE, COOPAAI and AGANADAN ensure governance, evaluation and control over the implementation of the project.
This project is developed under the CERCARBONO standard, using its Protocol for Voluntary Carbon Certification.
Cercarbono is a standard with a voluntary carbon certification programme that facilitates and guarantees the registration of Climate Change Mitigation Programmes or Projects (CCMPs), the certification of emissions, and the registration of the carbon credits generated by these initiatives.
How does this project contribute to the SDG’s?
By using CERCARBONO’s tool to report contributions of climate change mitigation initiatives to the Sustainable Development Goals, it is determined that the project is aligned with the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement.
CERCARBONO is the only standard with an SDG verification process.
The activities implemented as part of the REDD+ Project will contribute to the achievement of the SDGs in the beneficiary communities, as stated by CERCARBONO’s tool, with a special focus on:
Proposals such as fire mitigation mechanisms, forest ranger patrols, protection of fauna and flora and implementation of an ecological corridor.
By designing an ecological corridor on private land the diversification of the biological genome of all species in the area is facilitated
This project will serve as a model for cost-effectively halting the deforestation and degradation in many parts of the world, provided there is an organised cadaster and native forests.
The benefit sharing of this project is transparent and known by all beneficiaries and farmer associations.
Considering the individual and collective distribution, the landowners receive a total net benefit of 65%.
