ACOPAGRO is an association of cocoa producers in the San Martin region of Peru. The association was established in 1992, originally funded by the United Nations' cocoa cultivation programme. The cooperative was originally formed of 27 producers and has grown to have over 1800 members from the four different provinces of San Martin. Today, ACOPAGRO has over 1,800 members spanning four different provinces in the San Martín state. The association works to enhance cocoa cultivation, ensure market stability and raise the income levels and product quality for the cocoa farmers. Although the producers are largely dependent on cocoa sales, they also farm livestock for consumption and to increase their incomes. They often have poor access to good sanitation, such as clean drinking water, education, and health care. The association sought Fair Trade certification to assist them in gaining access to these services and became certified in 2004. ACOPAGRO is involved in the community reforestation programme 'Alto Huayabamba: carbon dioxide sequestration through reforestation with small-scale farmers', being implemented in partnership with Pur Projet.

WWF began its efforts in Peru in 1969 when it contributed towards the successful recovery of the vicuña –which was then on the verge of extinction – by supporting the creation of the first protected area for wildlife management in Peru, the Pampa Galeras National Reserve (Ayacucho). Later, it participated decisively in the protection of natural areas such as the Manu National Park, the Paracas National Reserve and many others. In 1994, WWF established its first project office in our country and later in 1998, the WWF Peru Programme Office was formed. Since then, WWF Peru intensified its efforts to guarantee biodiversity conservation in key coastal ecosystems, the Andes and the Amazon, in collaboration with the government, as well as with indigenous and local communities, strengthening their natural resource management capacities.

ACOPAGRO and Pur Projet set up this project in Alto Huayabamba to alleviate pressure on forests and biodiversity in the area. ACOPAGRO is an association of cocoa producers in San Martin, established in 1997. Reforestation efforts aim to increase the productivity of the land for local producers. The project was initiated in 2008 and aims to reforest more than 2300 hectares of land shared by 1800 small-scale farmers within the ACOPAGRO cooperative. The project aims to reforest cocoa plantations, purmas (or unproductive lands) and other plantations with 2 million trees over 6 years. It is expected that this will capture 1,150,000 tones of CO2e over 40 years. As of June 2013, the project had planted over 1.2 million trees. The project received validation from the Rainforest Alliance according to the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) in December 2011. As of the end of 2013, the project has not yet issued any Verified Emissions Reductions (VERs) (Verified Carbon Units; VCUs).
The Biocorridor Martin Sagrado Project for Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Deforestation aims to address deforestation from land use change in the region of San Martin. The project seeks to conserve forests of high conservation value and contribute to improving the livelihoods of local communities. The project covers an are of 295,654 hectares of forests located on the Huayabamba river. It is being implemented by Pur Projet, who have other REDD+ projects in the region, and Fundacion Amazonia Viva. The project was initiated in 2010 to complement the Alto Huayabamba reforestation project, also being implemented by Pur Projet. It supports sustainable forest management and agroforestry activities, as well the use of non-timber forest products (NTFPs) and the development of local livelihoods through financing provided from the sale of carbon credits. The project's crediting period is from 2010 until 2049.
El objetivo principal de este proyecto es diseñar un modelo participativo, basado en conocimiento tradicional y científico, para la restauración de la cobertura vegetal en las regiones más críticas de quebradas y ríos de comunidades nativas. Restablecer el capital natural es crítico para la provisión de agua, el control de la sedimentación y la erosión , mejorar la seguridad alimentaria -especialmente de los recursos acuáticos y los peces que son la fuente más importante de proteína en las comunidades indígenas-, y mitigar los impactos del cambio climático a través del control de inundaciones y deslizamientos de tierra. El modelo, que se ejecutará como piloto en la Comunidad Nativa Shampuyacu, permitirá mejorar y expandir los programas de recuperación de vegetación ribereña que pueden mejorar el bienestar humano de las comunidades indígenas contribuyendo en pos de una economía sostenible a nivel de cuenca. A futuro, se espera ampliar este modelo a las otras 13 comunidades awajún del Alto Mayo y evetualmente, de los caseríos aledaños.
The Alto Mayo Protected Forest (AMPF), established in 1987, covers 182,000 hectares of land in the Peruvian Amazon. The area is significant in terms of its high biodiversity, for its role in watershed protection and carbon sequestration, and for forming part of the Abiseo-condor-Kutuku Conservation Corridor; a highly threatened ecosystem with high numbers of endemic plant and animal species. Despite its designation as a Natural Protected Area, the area has been threatened by construction of the a national highway, which crosses the AMPF, and by insufficient funds for its management. The area has consequently been subject to widespread settlement and high levels of deforestation. Other threats include mega-development projects, such as the Initiative for the Integration of the Regional Infrastructure of South America (IIRSA), and increased coffee production. The ICAM was designed by Conservation International and a number of national partners in response to these threats. The main goal of the ICAM is to promote the sustainable management of the AMPF and its associated ecosystem services, to benefit local communities and the global climate. To achieve this and significant emissions reductions, the ICAM aims to design a new mechanism to increase the economic value of land to compete with destructive alternate land uses. One way this is being addressed is through the establishment of Conservation Agreements, between local communities and the AMPF Head Office. It is hoped that the financial sustainability of conservation agreements will be secured by compensation in the form of REDD+ benefits from future avoided deforestation. The Conservation Agreements are being designed and implemented by the Association Andean Ecosystems (ECOAN), which has significant experience working with the communities in and around the AMPF. The ICAM is also investing in improving the governance and enforcement capacity of the AMPF Head Office to address illegal activities in the area and to better manage the complex situation between local communities and the AMPF's goals.

The area of the project is in the forest-covered zone of the CCAH and covers 50.194,08 ha, located in the Corridor of Conservation Abiseo-Cóndor-Kutukú, in the two countries of Ecuador and Peru; within the hotspot of the eastern mountains of the Tropical Andes and the Great Forest Area of the Amazon in the lower Andean-Amazonian areas. Specific objectives being the following: a) Protect the different ecosystems located within the CCAH and the habitat of the most important species for conservation; b) Contribute to the upkeep of a hydro-equilibrium in the higher basin of the river Huayabamba, principal contributor to the river Huallaga, which provides environmental services to the population of the region of San Martín; c) Support the conservation of the habitat of endangered species, amongst which the spectacle bear (Tremarctos ornatus), critically endangered species like the yellow-tailed woolly monkey (Oreonax flavicauda), common and nomad species; d) Contribute to the state of knowledge about the ecosystems by scientific investigation; and e) Promote and improve mechanisms of civil participation for conservation and communal development.
The project involves the Native Community of Yurilamas, which is comprised of 55 families and protects 31,019 hectares of forest land in the province of San Martin, Peru. Financed through the sale of carbon credits from forest protection and regeneration, the project supports sustainable forest management, agro-forestry, the use of non-timber forest products (NTFPs) and livelihood development in Yurilamas. The project aims to create a 40-year income stream that will directly enhance local livelihoods and local natural resource management capacity. Carbon financing will be used to support rural communities to develop a range of livelihood activities including the harvesting of non-timber forest products (NTFPs), improved agro-forestry activities and productivity intensification, community-based ecotourism infrastructure, micro-credit and communication development as well as other economic, social, cultural and environmental activities. The project will also work with the national and provincial governments to formulate long term plans for sustainable natural resource management to foster economic growth.
