Recommendations sent by the Brazilian Coalition on Climate and Forests in the formal consultation of each of the measures show the fundamental importance of decarbonizing agriculture and cattle raising
The Brazilian Coalition on Climate and Forests sent, for one more year, its considerations for the 2023-2024 Safra Plan, which is the main instrument of Brazilian agricultural policy and is responsible for a central role in the sustainable development. Consequently, the Coalition defends its total alignment with Brazilian climate goals, linking its portfolio to practices of low carbon emissions, such as the Program for the Reduction of Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Agriculture (ABC Program). The recommendations to the Safra Plan have the objective to increase productivity and the adoption of good production practices based on the “adoption of technologies, on the adaptation of productive systems and on the implementation of the Forest Code.” Read about all the proposals here.
The deadline for making the subsidies public with respect to the traceability in the bovine and buffalo chain was extended until March 24. Because, initially, the consultation was up to February 16, and quite restricted, the Coalition has attached a positioning. In it, the organization explains that “the traceability of the productive chains is a fundamental measure to disassociate them from illegal deforestation and to promote the decarbonization of the economy. All over the world, the competitiveness of agribusiness is interlaced with a concern for environmental conservation.”
