The transition zone between the Cerrado and the Atlantic Rainforest Biomes in Brazil is a crucial area for maintaining biodiversity, supporting ecosystem services, and mitigating climate change. However, deforestation has severely impacted these regions, resulting in significant loss of habitat, soil degradation, and water pollution.
Fazenda Boa Vista is a reforestation (ARR) project that aims to restore 293 hectares of degraded land by planting high-absorbing tree species, while simultaneously promoting the recovery of the natural savanna ecosystem.
Over the project length more than 425,000 tons of carbon dioxide(tCO2) will be captured with an average annual GHG removal of 21,424 tCO2.
The project objectives go beyond carbon and encompass a comprehensive approach that prioritizes the benefits of the environment, biodiversity and the communities involved.
