Project Summary:
This project will stem forest and biodiversity loss in Paraguay, through sustainable ranching practices. Action to stem forest and biodiversity loss needs to be accompanied by action to mitigate socio-economic vulnerability by building capacity for, and implementing, sustainable ranching practices in collaboration with local communities, government, and academia. Paraguay’s leading meat processing company will support these efforts and contribute to large-scale industry standard adoption. Interventions will be scaled by large and small-scale Chacoan ranchers committing to sustainable practices in exchange for market access and multi-disciplinary expertise, thus reducing deforestation pressure, enhancing biodiversity protection and improving welfare of vulnerable communities.
