PACAJAI REDD+ PROJECT

The Pacajai REDD+ project, located in the Brazilian state of Para, aims to prevent unplanned deforestation for 123,000 hectares of native Amazonian forest, now managed by the local villagers. Along with its environmental impact, it improves the standard of living of the population through direct investments in health, education, infrastructure and the empowerment of vulnerable groups. The objective of this project is to avoid the emission of 9,582,742 tonnes of CO2 for a period of 40 years.

Project Benefits
  • Remove CO2 from the atmosphere

  • Protect 123,000 ha of forest and keep native species

  • Create local jobs and economic growth in Para region of the Amazon

  • Rebuild all schools in the region and granting access to internet

  • Provide filtered water to over 500 families

  • Provide free honey and açai fruits to the local population

  • Avoid 9.6 million tonnes of CO2 over 40 years

ENERGY EFFICIENT COOKSTOVES

Most families living in Uganda cook with traditional three-stone fires or open fires which create serious health implications for locals. This means that a lot of time is spent on firewood collection, causing deforestation and land degradation.

This Project is implementing energy-efficient cookstoves to households within three districts of Uganda, allowing locals to cook the same amount of food using less firewood which reduces their health issues from smoke. The total emission reduction from the disseminated 25,600 improved cookstoves will be around 480,976 tonnes of CO2, with an annual average emission reduction of 32,065 tonnes of CO2.

Project Benefits
  • 25,600 improved cookstoves

  • Removes 32,065 tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere yearly

  • 480,976 reduced from cookstoves

  • Continuous investment in cookstoves for villages

  • Improved air quality for local populations

  • Employment and income generation to Ugandans

  • Conservation of trees and wood

BuildOn Solar Learning Centres

The ClimatePositive-buildOn partnership is a passion project for both organizations, cooperating to create truly impactful change.

It brings solar-powered technology to light up children’s schools, making them available for evening adult literacy programs. These programs not only promote literacy but also empower business and work through a variety of other activities, including reforestation, irrigation, crop and livestock management and beekeeping. All of which provides food for school children, meaning more of them stay in class and remain healthy. 

Project Benefits
  • Replace CO2 and particulate matter with clean solar energy

  • Provide new sources of energy to the local community

  • Restore biodiversity to local lands

  • Provide education and economic empowerment

  • Increase food security throughout sponsorship regions

  • 9 schools implemented with solar power

  • 5,588 students enrolled

Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve

The Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve Project is located in a 64,000-hectare forest on the southern coast of Borneo and is avoiding nearly 130 million tonnes of carbon emissions. It is the world’s largest initiative to protect and preserve High Conservation Value (HCV), lowland tropical peat swamp forests – one of the most highly endangered ecosystems in the world. Located in the province of Central Kalimantan, the project is also designed to protect the integrity of the adjacent world-renowned Tanjung Putting National Park by creating a physical buffer zone on the full extent of the ~90km eastern border of the park. Rimba Raya is rich in biodiversity, including several flagship species such as the endangered Bornean orangutan, Clouded Leopard, Gibbon, Proboscis Monkey, and Asian Sun Bear.

Projects Benefits
  • 52 jobs created including 17 women

  • Improved food security

  • 64,000 hectare forest avoiding nearly 130 million tonnes of CO2

  • Largest initiative to protect and preserve high conservation value tropical peat swamp forests

  • 18,000 mangrove trees planted

  • Small scale solar plant
