Brazil has vast natural resources that carry immense potential for the country’s economic and environmental goals. As in many other nations, there is frequent tension between these goals, compounded by rising pressures from increasing global demand for food, along with climate change risk. Using land efficiently is crucial to achieve both sets of goals. Yet, the promotion of efficient land use still stands as a great challenge.
A Production and Protection strategy is an integrated approach towards land use intended to help address these challenges. The recent Climate Policy Initiative study, “Production and Protection: A First Look at Key Challenges in Brazil,” applies a Production and Protection framework to Brazil to understand where land can be used more efficiently across important sectors within the country.
On this webinar, Clarissa Costalonga e Gandour and Dimitri Szerman, Senior Analysts with Climate Policy Initiative and authors of the study, present findings and take questions from attendees.
