How this project is helping
Where we're making a difference
The growth of the agriculture industry is the main cause of deforestation in Brazil. Intensive farming techniques cause the soil to quickly wear down, escalate greenhouse gas emissions, and threaten the protection of traditional groups, indigenous people, and Quilombola communities. By reforesting nearly 30,000 hectares (115 sq. miles, 300 sq. kilometers) in the Amazon, the Cerrado, and along the coast we are helping restore ecosystems while creating financial opportunities for surrounding communities.
About the evaluators
Eden Reforestation Projects is a nonprofit NGO that works in developing countries to rebuild natural landscapes destroyed by deforestation. Eden works directly with communities experiencing extreme poverty resulting from the deforestation and destruction of the land that sustains them.
The details this project
We began scouting project sites and recruiting local leaders in 2021. By working directly with traditional groups, indigenous people, Quilombola communities, and local governments, we are restoring Brazil's forests and creating financial opportunities for nearby communities, beginning in the Amazon, Cerrado, and coastal mangrove habitats. Today, our teams have planted millions of native trees, helping conserve and protect indigenous lands.
