To provide the analysis and planning tools necessary for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD) and associated greenhouse gas emissions in the tri-national Madre de Dios, Acre, Pando region of the Andes-Amazon basin, currently under threat by the planned paving of the Inter-Oceanic Highway. The project will establish a consultation process with stakeholders in the region who will implement measures to reduce deforestation and receive compensation for carbon credits generated from this reduction. This work will assist directly in developing information and plans by the states in the region to understand their potential to reduce future deforestation and participate in any future REDD programs to provide monetary incentives to reward reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
