Unlocking economic opportunities to scale Forest and Landscape Restoration in Brazil
As of: March 2019
Objective and activities
Brazil is well-positioned to be a world leader in large-scale forest landscape restoration. The Brazilian government included a restoration target of 12 million ha by 2030 in its NDC, and has adopted the PROVEG policy to help facilitate the implementation of restoration. However, doubts remain on the benefits of restoration among various Brazilian stakeholders. This project aims to (1) equip policymakers, companies, landowners, NGOs and communities with strong data, evidence, guidelines of good restoration practices, and prioritisation maps for the Atlantic Rainforest and Amazon biomes, (2) prioritize three landscapes to assess for FLR opportunity and identify the most efficient and effective interventions available, (3) convene the range of stakeholders implementing FLR locally and define a common large-scale FLR action plan for each priority landscape, (4) create new financing mechanisms for FLR activities, and (5) deploy a monitoring system.
