Description

A Tropical Forest Conservation Project in Central Belize This carbon project focuses on preserving 666 hectares of broadleaf forest in central Belize. It has been validated and verified under the Voluntary Carbon Standard (VCS) and the Climate, Community and Biodiversity Alliance (CCBA) to ensure its credibility and transparency. Key Highlights: - The project follows the Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) approach, which aims to combat climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation and forest degradation. - The project was awarded the Gold Level under the CCB Standards Second Edition, which recognizes its efforts in protecting biodiversity and promoting sustainable development. - The broadleaf forest in central Belize is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna, including endangered species such as the jaguar and scarlet macaw. - The project is designed to provide economic and social benefits to the local communities through sustainable forest management practices, such as eco-tourism and non-timber forest products. - By protecting the forest, the project helps to mitigate climate change and contribute to the global effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This carbon project is a prime example of how conservation and sustainable management can go hand in hand with economic development and climate change mitigation. By protecting the biodiversity of central Belize's broadleaf forest, the project is contributing to the preservation of a unique ecosystem while also providing valuable benefits to the local communities.
