[OCF's letter] Official letter requesting to the Brazilian government to regulate the Environmental Reserve Quotas (CRAs)

CSF-Brazil is a signatory to the letter sent on November 11, 2018, by the Forest Code Observatory (OCF) "to His Excellency the Chief Minister of the Civil House Eliseu Padilha, requesting the adoption of measures for the issuance of the decree of Regulation of Environmental Reserve Quotas (CRAs), which are mentioned in articles 44 and in after the Chapter X of the Forest Code". See OCF website for more information. (News is in Portuguese).

"Created in 2013, the OCF is a network of 28 institutions - including CSF-Brazil - which monitors the implementation of the new Forest Law (Federal Law 12.651, of May 25, 2012), with the intention of generating data and critical mass that collaborate with the enhancement of the positive aspects and the mitigation of its negative aspects of the new Forest Law and avoid further setbacks."

CSF-Brazil became involved in the development of this letter through our study on CRAs. Please, click here to read our full report, here for our Policy Brief and here for more information on our project.
