The Project involves the development, construction, and operation of a eucalyptus plantation and kraft pulp mill in the Concepción region of Paraguay covering an area of 190,000 hectares of former cattle ranch lands. The mill was conceived to produce 1,500,000 air-dried tons per annum (ADt/a) of bleached eucalyptus pulp. The mill is expected to produce 200 MW of renewable energy, generating a surplus of 100 MW. The land will be partially converted to eucalyptus plantations to supply the mill in future years, with an estimated 47 percent of this land to remain under existing, natural land cover in preservation. Concepción lies at the margins of the Paraguay river and is located around 400 km north of the capital of Asunción.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF THE UNITED STATES INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT FINANCE CORPORATION (DFC)
The Office of Accountability is an independent office that addresses complaints about environmental or social issues related to DFC-supported projects. The office provides communities an opportunity to have concerns independently reviewed and addressed. If you submit a complaint to the Office of Accountability, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a problem solving dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the DFC complied with its policies to prevent environmental, social, human rights, and labor harms.
