Dialogue on the implementation of the Forest Code to conserve Brazilian forests

On August 7th, 2018, CSF-Brazil, the Forest Code Observatory (OCF) and the Brazilian Biodiversity Fund (Funbio) facilitated a "Dialogue on economic instruments and ecological identity for the Forest Code implementation." Forty-five professionals, representing government, research institutions and rural producers, attended the event in Brasília. The dialogue provided a forum to discuss possible ways of implementing the provisions of the Forest Code (Law 12.651 / 2012), including economic incentives, Legal Reserves (LRs) compensation, and the ecological identity requirement for compensation - according to the ruling of the Supreme Court Federal Court (STF) in February 2018 - with a special focus on the Environmental Reserve Quotas (CRAs) market.

Promoting the Brazilian native vegetation conservation: Recommendations for Environmental Reserve Quotas (CRAs) Implementation

CSF-Brazil conducted a study on Environmental Reserve Quotas (Portuguese acronym CRAs) implementation in Maranhão state (MA) and opportunities in the states of Bahia (BA) and Tocantins (TO). The study aimed to support MA in the CRAs market implementation and to promote dialogue and sharing of experiences among MA, BA and TO. The ultimate goal of the study is to promote ecosystems and forest conservation in a more economically efficient and environmentally sound way in the Amazon, Cerrado and Caatinga Brazilian biomes.
