Brazil has committed to restore 12 million hectares of degraded and deforested land through its commitment to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Its goal? Store carbon, protect biodiversity, and create jobs and economic opportunity for rural communities.

In recent years, dozens of projects and hundreds of communities have started restoring forests, farms, and pasture across Brazil’s many biomes, from the Atlantic Forest to the Amazon and the Cerrado. But, until now, researchers couldn’t comprehensively assess how much land that local organizations, companies, and state governments have begun to restore. To track that progress and ensure that people working in the field are recognized for their important work, the Brazilian Coalition on Climate, Forests and Agriculture has developed a new platform that gathers data on restoration, reforestation and natural regeneration.

Join the Coalition, WRI Brasil, and their partners for the launch of the Brazilian Restoration and Reforestation Observatory, a first-of-its-kind tool that brings data from across the country into one easily accessible place. In this webinar, you will be introduced to the platform, understand how the team has collected and interpreted the data, and hear the results of a preliminary analysis that shows how many hectares of land in Brazil are under forest restoration, natural regeneration, and reforestation

O monitoramento como ferramenta para dar escala à restauração

Transmissão: Youtube

O Brasil tem o compromisso de restaurar paisagens em áreas degradadas para recuperar seu potencial ambiental e sua capacidade de gerar ganhos econômicos. Além disso, a restauração florestal é essencial para o combate às mudanças climáticas.

Essa restauração já está acontecendo no campo, a partir de iniciativas de organizações, empresas e governos. Para comprovar a evolução da restauração e garantir que produtores e pessoas no campo sejam reconhecidos pelo importante trabalho que fazem em prol da sustentabilidade no Brasil, a Coalizão Brasil Clima, Florestas e Agricultura desenvolveu uma plataforma que reúne dados de restauração, reflorestamento e regeneração natural no Brasil.

Acompanhe o webinar de lançamento do Observatório da Restauração e Reflorestamento, com apresentação sobre a ferramenta, contextualização dos dados e os números mapeados de restauração florestal, regeneração natural e reflorestamento no Brasil.
