Enhancing the climate resilience and livelihoods of the indigenous wetlands communities of Datem del Maranon in the Amazon basin, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation.
The swamps of Datem del Maranon hold a total carbon stock estimated at around 3.78 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2 eq.). The project will avoid deforestation of an estimated 4,861 hectares of palm swamp and terra firma forests over a 10-year period and enhance resilience and conservation of 343,000 ha of peatlands and forest.
Climate change will also have profound impacts on the region, with more frequent droughts, flooding, and heatwaves, and changes in primary productivity, affecting people and ecosystems.
The project will facilitate better land-use planning and management of the region's wetlands, while strengthening sustainable, commercial bio-businesses of non-timber forest products. It will entrust indigenous communities with the management of resources, improve their livelihoods, and empower women in the decision-making processes.
The funding will support government departments in developing the land-use plan, and provide support to community-based organizations for the participation of indigenous people. The largest share of funds will support bio-businesses, including for business plans, marketing and management, equipment and supplies, and the development of solar energy for operations. The nature-based products include salted fish, smoked meat, aguaje pulp (from palm trees), and "dragon's blood," a croton tree resin used as an antiinflammatory and anti-viral.
Expected project benefits:
GCF results areas
* Enhance income levels of women through bio-business opportunities.
UN Sustainable Development Goal
* #13 Climate action

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF GREEN CLIMATE FUND
The Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) addresses complaints by people who believe they are negatively affected or may be affected by projects or programmes funded by the Green Climate Fund (GCF). The complainant can raise issues related to any of GCF’s policies and procedures, including those relating to social and environmental issues, indigenous peoples, gender, and information disclosure, among others. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may seek to address the issues raised by facilitating problem solving or conducting a compliance process. You can learn more about the Independent Redress Mechanism and how to file a complaint at https://irm.greenclimate.fund/.
