In addition to agroforestry coffee production, the Café Apuí Agroflorestal initiative has the REDD+ Café Apuí Agroflorestal project to reduce carbon emissions through deforestationment avoided in the native forest areas of the partner families.

Imagine the perfect union between innovation, environmental preservation and support for rural families. We opened the doors to more than 40 small and medium-sized rural family properties, through the REDD+ mechanism, allowing them to access resources and support forest conservation.

Our premise is clear:develop the agroforestry coffee production chain, offer specialized technical assistance and promote rural family production, activities that go beyond simple production and prevent deforestation. 

Investments in agroforestry areas, quality technical assistance, workshops and training are just the beginning. And best of all: the sale of forest conservation credits results in direct benefits for the families involved.It's a real paradigm shift, where progress goes hand in hand with preservation!

More about the project

The projectREDD+ Café Apuí Agroflorestal (CAA) aims to expand the agroforestry coffee production chain in southeastern Amazonas and prevent the deforestation of native forests on rural properties in the municipalities of Apuí, Manicoré and Novo Aripuanã, in the state of Amazonas, Brazil.


In the absence of the project, the forests on the participating properties would be cleared for the implementation of agricultural activities, especially pastures, to generate income. It is a grouped project with a duration of 30 years that will have periodic membership of new participants over the first ten years.Learn more by accessing the project documents!

Project Areas


Apuí, Manicoré and Novo Aripuanã totaled 667km2 of deforestation in 2021, being among the five most deforested municipalities in the state and among the 10 in the Legal Amazon. With the advancement of road infrastructure and public policies for agricultural expansion, the region received new capitalized migrants who invested in land acquisition and deforestation (Carrero et al. 2022a, Yanai et al. 2020, 2022).
