Acre Amazonian Rainforest Conservation Portfolio
90% of Brazil’s Acre state is forested, but current rates of destruction mean by 2030 this could decline to 65%. This collection of three projects aims to prevent deforestation across 105,000 hectares of pristine rainforest in the Amazon basin, protecting some of the world’s most biodiverse habitats. With the support of carbon finance, the projects work with communities and local groups to help protect ecosystem services while providing alternative models of economic development which avoid destruction of the forest. All three projects have achieved Gold Level status under the Climate Community and Biodiversity (CCB) Standard: Acre for its conservation efforts in an area of global significance, and Rucas and Jurua for exceptional community benefits.
