Preserving the rainforest in the Amazon
RMDLT PORTEL-PARA REDD PROJECT
RMLDT Portel - Para REDD project aims to preserve biodiversity in a high-threat region by empowering and capacitating the local Riverine Community
Strengthening forest ownership and rights
With a strong social goal, this project seeks to empower the local Riverine Community by supporting the acquisition of legal rights on the land they inhabit.
The Cadastrol Ambiental Rural document is key to achieve this goal, since it will enable them to develop profitable crops and improve their economic status.
This project protects over 171,973 ha in Portel, State of Para, Brazil, and includes 17 different private properties
Improving local communities' well-being and livelihood
Adding to land tenure, the RMLDT Portel – Para REDD Project promotes employment creation in the form of forest protection. Through capacity building, ribeirinhos will acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to improve their livelihoods.
By the distribution of cookstoves, benefiting 250 community families, the project also contributes to food security.
Support the project to promote further social development
Backing this project broadens the development of activities with a direct positive impact to ribeirinhos’ everyday life.
Take, for instance, the construction of a new school building that will facilitate access to education, paving the way for improved opportunities to the local individuals.
