Legal compliance and zero deforestation initiatives Brazil
2016 | Proforest, WWF, TFA 2020
In Brazil various initiatives are dedicated to assessing environmental and other risks associated with commodity production, while a number of other initiatives seek to mitigate those risks. These voluntary initiatives are dispersed and often unknown to the private sector.
Companies urgently need a set of tools to help them to meet the Brazil Forest Code and implement their zero deforestation commitments.
The study and accompanying spreadsheet provides a survey of 73 tools and initiatives, including:
- Mapping and monitoring initiatives that help companies to identify and analyse the risk of deforestation in particular regions, and
- Public and private initiatives that could help them mitigate of the risk of deforestation in each region.
This report is an intermediate product. In a further stage, the project will develop an open, online platform to present the initiatives through a geographical information tool, and support their use across Brazil to help eliminate deforestation from Brazilian agriculture and forestry commodity chains.
