Reports of New Mechanisms Feasibility Studies: FY2009

Title of Feasibility Study (FS)Feasibility Study for “Halitina” REDD Project
FYFY 2009
Main Implementing EntityKanematsu Corporation
FS Partner(s)Mundus Carbo
Location of Project ActivityBrazil (Mato Grosso State)
Summary of FS ReportPDF (708KB)
Description of Project ActivityThis project site is in the area of Cerrado vegetation, which is the mid-west part of Brazil, western of Mato Grosso Province, northern of Tangara de Serra City. The area is one of the foremost soybeans production place. The assart had expanded in proportion to the increase of the prices of agricultural products, and the area become a one of the hugest deforestation area in Amazon. The project plan is by providing an incentive to the indigenous inhabitant, the Paresi people, using the emission credit profit. The Paresi people territories encompass are total 1,081,000 hectares. By providing the more incentive(profit) than the income to rent land in a large-scale farmhouse to the Paresi, the deforestation could be stopped. The project scheme is using the emission credit trading profit for the Paresi people, and stops the deforestation. This project would be a forest conservation project of the indigenous people participation type project.
The aim of the Halitină REDD project is to avoid deforestation within the 6 Paresis indigenous territories officially delineated by the Brazilian government, by means of replacing land leasing practices by forest protection. In the absence of the project activity, the existing tendency of land conversion from forests to large-scale soy plantations would be maintained, due to the indigenous needs for resources, and thus promoting net CO2 emissions to the atmosphere.
Thus, the project objective is to reduce GHG emissions from indigenous land use change, by means of preventing land conversion without interrupting the flow of economic resources crucial to the Paresi economic system.
