Table S1: Datasets used in the GIS analysis. In some cases the datasets that we used in our analysis were themselves compiled from a number of pre-existing datasets; to make this clear we have listed the dataset that we used in regular font, but also added the original datasets below in italics.
Available deforestation and forest remnant landcover data for Amazon Biome from year 2002 to 2008.
PRODES/ National Institute for Space Research (INPE).
Deforestation and remnant forest 2
Available deforestation and forest remnant landcover data for Biomes of Atlantic Forest, Cerrado, Pantanal, Caatinga and Pampas from year 2002 to 2008.
Ministry of Environment/ Brazilian Environment and Natural Resources Institute (MMA - CSR/IBAMA)
Municipalities layer referent to 2007 from Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE)
Jaguar Conservation Units
Priority areas for jaguar conservation. Updated data from CENAP/ ICMbio and Panthera Foundation. 20 JCUs inside the Brazilian territory (4 of urgent action priority, 9 of interest for research and conservation, 5 of interest for conservation and 2 of research interest).
Paula et al. (2010), Nijhawan et al. 2010, Nijhawan (2012), Sanderson et al. (2002), Desbiez &Paula 2012
Jaguar network corridors, CENAP/ ICMbio and Panthera Foundation. 18 corridors considering barriers, 13 corridors without consider barriers.
* Corridor polygons merged and adapted from original.

We identified municipalities where REDD projects occur because many projects did not have available GIS layers.
Cifor (2010), SFB/MMA (2009), Idesam (2010) and others, see STable 2.

Table S2: This table summarises all of the REDD related initiatives that we used in our analysis. These data refer to all activities in Brazil that relate to Reducing emissions from deforestation and degradation. (Data referent to January 2011).

WWF/ SKY Forest Carbon Network Initiative
AD, ADG, RS,AGF
Project historical series of deforestation
* AD =Avoided Deforestation, ADG = Avoided degradation, RS = restoration, AGF = Agroforestry. (Modified from Cifor 2010).
Status of projects (in January 2011): “in progress” refers to projects that have already been implemented. “in preparation” corresponds to projects in an advanced stage of planning, “support program” corresponds to projects giving parallel support to REDD projects, and “early stage of planning” corresponds to areas that host planned, future REDD projects.
Any information regarding the locations of private projects not given online or in reports was obtained through direct contact with the projects (email, phone).
Most of initiatives were mentioned in the Cifor (May and Millikan, 2010), IDESAM (Cenamo, M. C., et al. 2009) and SFB ( SFB - MMA 2009) publications. We also cite other references below (All accessed by January 2011).
