The Valdivian Coastal Reserve has become the first forest carbon project in Chile to receive CCB verification that its carbon credits combat climate change, whilst contributing to the conservation of biodiversity and to the development of nearby communities.

Researchers from Chile and the United States are cooperating on a multi-year study of two iconic and similar species of old-growth tree giants from the coastal temperate rainforests of both countries to provide new data on the ecological processes of canopies and their connections to overall forest ecology.
In an unprecedented multi-disciplinary public-private initiative The Nature Conservancy (TNC), the Municipality of Corral, the Regional Government, the Ministry of Public Works, CONAF, Sernatur and Senadis handed over to the authorities a full Master Plan for Universal Accessibility Tourism Infrastructure to be implemented in the Chaihuín Beach, which aims to develop this sector as only one of its kind in the Los Rios Region.
The Agreement seeks to develop a pilot area at a national level where a public - private management model of a protected areas buffer zone (ZAM) can be designed and implemented which would establish long-term and participatory intervention strategies.
