Project

Summary.

Close to the ancient city of Machu Picchu, in the Vilcabamba-Amboro conservation corridor, the construction of an inter-oceanic road uniting Brazil with Peru jeopardises the tropical rainforest and one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots.

This verified carbon standard project tackles the threat of displaced communities and illegal logging by increasing surveillance in the area and establishing sustainable forest management practices. This prevents deforestation and saves precious habitat relied upon by endangered species and tribal communities.
