Description: This Project aims to the creation of a Private Conservation Area of Primary Forest of Queñuales, cloudy forests and tropical forests; pro-
perty of farmers community within the 3 districts of the Commonwealth of Yacus, Jauja Province, Junín Region. This area would have an extension
of 28,477.1 has. With the REDD Project aims to reduce the emission due the deforestation produced by migratory agriculture. The profits produced
by the Carbon credits (avoided deforestation) could be use in sustainable economic projects for the inhabitant’s families of the zone. Furthermore,
the protection of this area will face the illegal cutting down of the primary forests.

“Restoration of degraded forests in the Saywite-Choquequirao-Ampay mancommunity, REDD4


Apurimac, Peru”
Description: The main goal of this project is to promote sustainable livelihoods in the Saywite-Choquequirao-Ampay mancommunity, Apurimac,
Peru. The project aims to restore and conserve 21 889 ha of mosaicked andean forests within the mancommunity. This project will contribute to ge-
nerate substantial information regarding the potential of Andean forests in carbon storage and emissions reductions, in defining baseline scenarios
for degraded Andean ecosystems and in developing monitoring strategies which may further contribute to the development of mitigation projects
concerning restoration practices in Andean forests.
