The strategy to reduce deforestation in the natural protected areas is based on promoting, both sustainable economic activities in the buffer zone of the RNTAMB and PNBS, and establishing conservation agreements in previously identified areas. The actions are oriented towards a "barrier" against the advance of the economic frontier (agricultural and mining) that avoids deforestation and forest degradation in order to reduce pressure on these PNAs.
In this scenario, when generating the adequate conditions for the supply of ecosystem services under a REDD scheme, it is proposed to take advantage of this potential so that the NPAs generate their own revenues that allow them to finance activities that currently can not be carried out due to lack of economic resources.
The REDD project promotes the restoration of degraded lands through the installation of agroforestry systems in the buffer zone, located around the RNTAMB, to generate a productive base with the cultivation of cocoa; with the purpose of mitigating the pressure of the farmers on the protected natural areas. This is an investment project that has the complete cocoa production chain, from installation to commercialization, which will improve the living conditions of producers, recovering deforested and degraded areas in a sustainable agriculture with temporary agricultural species and permnent forest species.
