Project description

The project is located in the Vichada Department and the Orinoco river basin, combining reforestation for timber production with biodiversity protection. In addition to reforesting the savannah, the project conserves remaining patches of native vegetation and creates additional conservation areas along riverbanks and other watersheds.

Starting 2012 the team of ForestFinest Consulting was working in close cooperation with the involved companies in Vichada, organizing them to jointly achieve a group certification to reduce certification efforts and costs. FFC supervised and managed the successful Gold Standard certification process for a total area of more than 70,000 hectares – the first Gold Standard certified group project on afforestation and reforestation worldwide.
