|Description||To reverse land degradation trends in the Gran Chaco through supporting sustainable land management in the productive landscape.
â€¢ SFM and SLM practices adopted throughout 500,000 hectareas in 9 demonstration sites and demonstration effects on 850,000 hectares by PY5, thereby reducing land degradation, conserving biodiversity and increasing carbon sequestration.
â€¢ The surface areas of biological corridors between Protected Areas located in demonstration sites increase in 280,000 hectareas managed under conservation status and leading to improved connectivity.
â€¢ Improved income of 4.586 producers and their families and an additional potential 4,000 through demonstration effects by PY5 (percentage of increase in income to be estimated in PY1 after completion of baseline studies)
â€¢ 0.5 tons C/hectare/year of additional carbon sequestered on project demonstration sites as a result of adoption of SFM and SLM practices (incremental amount of sequestration to be confirmed in PY1 after completion of baseline studies)|
