Paraguay is the meeting point for many different eco-regions which, together, create a rich and unique variety of wildlife habitats. World Land Trust (WLT) is funding the protection of habitat in three distinct regions: the Dry Chaco, the Chaco-Pantanal wetlands and the Atlantic Forest.

Paraguay Forest Conservation Project

The Paraguay Forest Conservation Project has two components in different threatened habitats, aiming to protect sufficient forest threatened with clearance to prevent the emission of approximately 220,000 tonnes of CO2e into the atmosphere over a 20 year period.

The conservation actions here are REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation), conserving forest where it is highly threatened by clearance and thus avoiding the release of carbon. This has allowed WLT to finance the programme through carbon the Carbon Balanced Programme.

This project has been certified under a world-leading set of standards for carbon offsetting, the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and Climate, Community and Biodiversity (CCB) Standard, to Gold level for its exceptional benefits.
