Selva Zoque - Sumidero Canyon Complex REDD project, Mexico
Ambio is developing a Plan Vivo project focused on avoiding deforestation and forest degradation in the Selva Zoque - Sumidero Canyon Complex, an area covering around 154,000 hectares and incorporating 5 reserves - Selva El Ocote Biosphere Reserve, Sumidero Canyon National Park, Protected Forest Zone “Villa Allende”, Area Subject to Ecological Conservation “La Pera” and Area Subject to Ecological Conservation “Cerro Meyapac”.
TLLG provided technical support for the development of the Project Design Document, helping to quantify emission reductions from avoided deforestation expected to result from the project.
