Poverty, Reforestation, Energy and Climate Change Project (PROEZA) Approved February 2018 Est. implementation period 5.0 years
Promoting forest planting and reforestation in Eastern Paraguay, sequestering carbon and supporting local households to diversity their agricultural production to enhance their resilience to the impacts of climate change.

Municipal districts in Eastern Paraguay are highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. In addition, certain municipal districts have extremely high climate and social vulnerability. Deforestation and forest degradation increases the vulnerability of populations dependent on family farming for agricultural production and livelihood. Environmental conditional cash transfers (E-CCT) will be provided in exchange for community-based climate-sensitive agroforestry. This will serve as a bridge until new farming models are financially sustainable. Credit will be made available to establish productive forest plantations for bioenergy, timber and silvo-pastoral production (combining forestry with livestock grazing). Capacity building will support good governance and law enforcement.

The project has an estimated lifespan of 30 years.
