Grouped Project

REDD+ AUD (Avoid Unplanned Deforestation)

The Cauaxi Grouped Project aims to conserve forests in preservation areas of several private properties located in the southeastern mesoregion of Pará State.

This is a Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) project, in the category of avoided unplanned deforestation (AUD), registered on the Verra platform under ID 4042.

Since the Cauaxi project is in the "Arc of Deforestation", the region with the highest historical rate of deforestation in the Amazon, its forests are under increasing threat. One important aspect is that conservation and monitoring costs can be prohibitive for landowners, especially in large, non-productive areas – Legal Reserves and Permanent Preservation Areas, for example. Therefore, the funds generated by the project can pay for these forest preservation and conservation actions.

5+ million tCO2e avoided between 2022 and 2032*

Amount of carbon that is no longer released into the atmosphere by not illegally clearing an area of forest, equivalent to almost 2 years of emissions by the state of Amapá (SEEG 2023).

*Projection based on areas in progress, under development and organic growth.


370+ beneficiary families*

Medium impact: 150+ families*
Low impact: 220+ families*

* Benefits in the same area of influence as the Brazilian Amazon APD project


Power and Water

Training and job and income generation




287 animal species being monitored

40 endemic species
14 endangered species
(CR/EN/VU - IUCN Red List)

In addition to preserving the habitat, surveying and monitoring the fauna and flora in the project areas generates knowledge about the diversity and geographical distribution of species in areas that have never been surveyed before, as well as identifying endemic and endangered species.

Contribution to the SDGs



Grouped Project

The Cauaxi project is validated to the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and Climate, Community and Biodiversity (CCB), audited annually by an independent Verra-accredited institution.
