The Itaúba REDD+ project aims to protect forests located in one of the regions with the highest trend of deforestation in the Amazon biome, in the municipalities of Itaúba and Marcelândia, in Mato Grosso.

Both municipalities are geographically located in the "Arc of Deforestation" and neighbors other highly deforested municipalities.

Our challenge

Before the project was implemented, the Itaúba area suffered a deforestation rate of 0,66% annually, which is equivalent to 95 soccer fields being cut down every year. The main factors that led the region to lead the deforestation statistics were cattle ranching and agricultural activity (soybean on a larger scale and rice on a smaller scale).

Our project

In 2021, we began monitoring fauna and flora, carbon stock measurements, and developing income alternatives for extractivist communities.
