Introduction


Green Paradise is a partnership between local communities and Progreso Verde conceptualized to protect biodiversity, preserve the forest and fund social improvements including healthcare, clean water, affordable housing, education, food security and enhanced safety through the economic activities of Agro-Forestry, Non-Timber Forest Products, Sustainable Forest Management, Eco Tourism and Carbon Forest Credits.

For communities to move beyond a subsistence level of living, basic blocks need to be in place such as clean water, housing, education and jobs. Green Paradise is an opportunity for those with business acumen, capital resources and personal integrity to create these building blocks.
