Brazil’s new Forest Code guide
The guide will support investors, rural producers, government managers and companies that buy, trade and sell forestry and agriculture commodities, both within and outside of Brazil, can proceed with assurance in this new scenario. Beyond highlighting key components of the new forest law, the publication makes a series of recommendations, and provides case studies to inspire the search for solutions such that the Forest Code strengthens the link between the economy and the environment.
This report is a tool that WWF is offering to highlight ways forward, including specific actions necessary, so the Rural Environmental Registry (or CAR the acronym in Portuguese) and the Environmental Compliance Program (or PRA) become a reality for rural properties in Brazil. If implemented well, these legal instruments have the potential to better environmental management and recover.
