Description/achievement of initiative

The Bolsa Floresta rewards traditional communities for their commitment to stop deforestation by distributing payments for ecosystem services to families, communities, and family associations.
Source:
In order to be eligible to receive the grants, families must attend a two-day training programme on environmental awareness and make a zero deforestation commitment. In addition, they must enroll their children in school. They then receive a monthly payment of 50 reais (US$30). Community associations can also receive payments of up to 4000 reais (US$2500) to support legal income generation activities that do not produce smoke, such as bee keeping for honey production, fish-farming or forest management.
