Penelitian kami berfokus pada pendekatan Produksi dan Perlindungan untuk penggunaan lahan, khususnya kehutanan dan pertanian, energi, dan pembiayaan. Kami juga memimpin kolaborasi yang disebut INPUT (Inisiatif Penggunaan Lahan – Iniciativa Para o Uso da Terra), yang menyatukan tim spesialis di garda depan tentang cara meningkatkan perlindungan lingkungan dan produksi pangan.
Forest Degradation in the Brazilian Amazon: Public Policy Must Target Phenomenon Related to Deforestation
To enhance understanding of this phenomenon, researchers from CPI/PUC-Rio empirically characterized the dynamics of degradation and its relationship with clear-cut deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon.
Improving Public Contracting Processes of Socio-Enviromental Studies for Brazil's Land Transportation Projects
In this report, researchers from CPI/PUC-Rio analyze in detail the public contracting process for EVTEA and EIAs for land transport infrastructure projects in the Amazon and reveal: a lack of transparency in the contracting process and a lack of criteria for selection, evaluation and approval of the studies.
Understanding the impact of rural credit is essential for formulating better agricultural policies in Brazil. In this Insight, researchers from the CPI / PUC-Rio detail the effects of credit in each Brazilian biome.
Where Does Brazil Stand With the Implementation of the Forest Code? An Snapshot of the CAR and the PRA in Brazil's States – 2020 Edition
The report provides a detailed analysis of state regulations and identifies actions underway in the states. It highlights progress made to date and the strategies enacted by states that are farther
ahead, as well as key gaps and challenges, and opportunities to accelerate the implementation of the law.
In this report, researchers from CPI/PUC-Rio provide an in-depth analysis of Brazilian rural credit policy and discuss challenges and recent progress in public policy. The analysis benefits from years of research and discussions with policymakers, the private sector, and academic researchers.
Brazil's Infrastructure Project Life Cycles: From Planning to Viability. Creation of a New Phase May Increase Project Quality
In this brief, researchers from CPI/PUC-Rio and Inter.B collaborated to analyze the instruments available for infrastructure planning – particularly those related to the land transport sector.
In this Whitepaper, researchers from CPI/PUC-Rio highlights the need for the logistics projects’ EVTEA and EIAs to incorporate and correctly identify the indirect effects that result from the changes in transportation costs induced by improvements. It describes how using a combination of geoprocessing tools and statistical analysis can be used to identify these impacts and provides an example of their importance.
CPI/PUC-Rio has assessed Ferrogrão’s governance, planning, and environmental risks as a way to contribute to the ongoing debate on sustainable infrastructure policies and projects in the country. This executive summary presents three studies conducted over the last year, which: (i) analyze the robustness of Ferrogrão’s planning based on a set of structuring questions, which should be prepared in the pre-feasibility stage; (ii) evaluate the administrative rites and the governance of decision-making related to the project; and (iii) develop an innovative methodology to understand Ferrogrão’s area of influence and deforestation risk.
The present work aims to explain the EE auction design and to point out and assess the risks of the proposed model regarding its implementation in Roraima’s pilot. The contributions seek to mitigate the risks tied to the Winner’s Curse, perfect the chosen measurement and verification methodology and present the implementation challenges associated to the misalignment between the interests of the electricity distributor and those of the central planner.
In this report, CPI/PUC-Rio researchers analyze the current risk management instruments and public policies and discuss pathways for improving their impact on Brazilian agriculture.
In this technical note, researchers from CPI/PUC-Rio (i) analyze how areas of influence are currently defined by government bodies and in the Terms of Reference for EVTEA and EIAs for land transportation infrastructure projects; (ii) present a set of recommendations for the adoption of clearer criteria for the definition and demarcation of areas of influence for new projects, from a perspective that explicitly incorporates where the direct and indirect effects of this type of undertaking will occur; and (iii) propose a dialogue between the EVTEA and the EIA.
