The Russas-Valparaiso Projects
The Russas-Valparaiso project will preserve over 160,000 acres of a rare and highly endangered tropical rainforest eco-system while simultaneously providing this rural forest community with a new school and major educational programs, a new health clinic, land title, and direct payments for forest conservation.
The project area is facing extensive deforestation pressures as a result of cattle ranching and subsistence agriculture in the Project zone. Russas-Valparaiso will mitigate deforestation and preserve the Project’s rich bio-diversity while simultaneously generating sustainable economic and educational opportunities for this local rainforest community.
Russas-Valparaiso is the model for successfully utilizing carbon credit revenues as the best approach to preserving these extraordinary forest eco-systems. The project is developed to the highest standards including Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and Climate, Community, Biodiversity Standard (CCB) and awarded “Triple Gold Distinction” for climate change mitigation, biodiversity, and community net positive benefits, which only a few projects in world have achieved.
