Project Bahorure, will cover two Indigenous Lands (TI): Ubawawe, located in the municipality of Santo Antônio do Leste (MT), and part of Parabubure, located in the municipality of Campinápolis (MT), directly contemplating 700 indigenous people from Aldeia Água Limpa, Sucupira , Sete Rios, Pedra Branca and São Benedito (TI Ubawawe) and the villages Buritizal and Paraiso (TI Paraburure). (MT). This is the Project for the Immediate Threat Response Window.

Food insecurity is increasing and hunger is part of the daily lives of most families, and can be evidenced by the large number of people with diseases linked to food shortages (quantity and quality), such as child malnutrition, diabetes, hypertension. The most dramatic result of this threat is the enormous mortality rate in the communities directly involved: in the year 2016, 15 deaths were reported, nine of them children, most of them malnourished. Thus, it is necessary to rescue local agriculture, through the introduction of creole maize varieties, beans and the enrichment of the plantations. It is also necessary to plant native and exotic forest species of food and cultural importance, which besides serving as a food source, will facilitate the maintenance of the animals in the reserve, facilitating hunting. These strategies will also be associated to the implementation of a surveillance post and inspection and construction of a seed house. In the villages of Buritizal, Paraíso, Água Limpa, Sete Rios, Pedra Branca and São Benedito, a work will be done to valorize traditional cultivation and in some crops the reinsertion of traditional species that have been lost. In the village Sucupira will be implanted the nursery, due to the greater availability of water and cultivated land in this village. All villages will be involved in seed collection, building and nursery management.

Recognition of sustainable soy production programs in Mato Grosso as a guarantee of supply for European importers.

On January 19, 2017, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by AproSoja, ABIOVE, FEFAC, FEDIOL and IDH at the Brazilian Embassy in Lisbon. The objective of the agreement is to strengthen cooperation in the area of responsible soy production in Brazil. Brazil has developed comprehensive and detailed legislation to preserve its rich biodiversity, notably the Brazilian Forest Code. This strong regulation leads to a substantial protection and regeneration of natural habitats on the private properties of Brazilian rural producers, who face a challenge of competitiveness since this type of legislation differs strongly from what is done in the rest of the world.

MoU signatories recognize that implementation of environmental legislation requires coordinated and meaningful supportive actions by farmers and supply chain partners to preserve the balance between environmental and social protection objectives and the economic viability of Brazilian agriculture. The Aprosoja / ABIOVE Soja Plus program and the FEFAC Soy Sourcing guidelines play an important role in achieving the common goal of improving the sustainability of soybean production in Brazil, in parallel with landscape and restoration initiatives, including the Regularization Program (PRA), in collaboration with IDH.

P deforestation and fire prevention in Mato Grosso - represents a set of strategic actions to prevent and control deforestation and burnings in the state of Mato Grosso. The Plan includes several actions, mainly linked to government agencies, as well as projects of a new series of activities, whose management and execution must be shared through the involvement of public power, organized civil society and productive and business segments. PPCDQ / MT is structured in 4 action lines with the respective objectives: Territorial Planning, Monitoring and Control, Promotion of Sustainable Activities and Governance and Executive Management.

For the period 2006-2010, established by the State Government as the first period in its Plan of Action for the Prevention and Control of Deforestation and Burning of the State of Mato Grosso - PPCDQ / MT, the objective was to reduce 64% of deforestation in the forest, and the State obtained a reduction of 68.28%. For the second commitment period, from 2011 to 2015, deforestation reduction was 75%, and a reduction of 80% was achieved. The first phase PPCDQ-MT can be downloaded here . The second phase can be downloaded here .

Starting in 2017, the PPCDQ-MT, underwent a comprehensive review process and was attended by several government departments and representatives of civil society. The main objective of the review and construction process of the third phase of the Plan was to incorporate the lessons learned during the first and second phases and to review the state strategy to combat and control deforestation, forest fires and forest fires. In this sense, considering the scope of the plan with regard to forest fire prevention and control actions, the Executive Committee decided to propose a change in its name, to "Action Plan for Prevention and Control of Deforestation, Forest Fires of the State of Mato Grosso - PPCDIF / MT (http://www.sema.mt.gov.br/attachments/article/106/PPCDIF-MT%202017%20-%202020.pdf).

Sustainable development goals for the State of Mato Grosso agreed between the public sector, private sector and civil society.

The State of Mato Grosso, through its governor, launched the "Strategy: Produce, Conserve and Include" (PCI) at the Climate Convention (COP 21) held in Paris in December 2015, with the objective of raising funds for the State of Mato Grosso to expand and increase the efficiency of agricultural and forestry production, conserve native vegetation, restore deforested and degraded areas, support the socioeconomic inclusion of family agriculture, and generate emission reductions and carbon sequestration of 6 MTCO2eq by controllingdeforestation and developing a low carbon economy. It is the largest global effort to mitigate climate change ever devised by a subnational state.

This strategy arose from a collective and participatory process involving different state secretaries, representatives of non-governmental organizations, private companies, and representatives of different productive sectors.The initiative is based on the premise that the State could obtain better results by establishing a partnership between the public sector, the private sector, and other stakeholder seeking to meet a common social interest.

For the implementation of the strategy, the organizational structure of the PCI Committee - CEEPCI -- was created, through Decree No. 468, of March 31, 2016. The Committee is responsible for approving the actions developed by the coordinating secretariats of the thematic axes, follow-up on the implementation of the strategy and the fulfillment of the goals, as well as the definition of its governance structure and fundraising mechanisms.

Project located in the Marãiwatsede Indigenous Land, near the municipality of Alto Boa Vista (MT). This is a project of the Natural Resources Management Window.

The Marãiwatsede Indigenous Land has more than 70% of its deforested area due to invasions promoted by politicians in the region since 1995, seriously compromising the flora and fauna, which contributed to the absence of wild animals and several indispensable plants for the physical and cultural survival of its people. Due to the deforestation promoted by the invaders, there is currently only grass in the area. There is no more hunting or fish. Cerrado foods such as fruits, coquinhos, medicinal plants and honey decreased, causing the substitution of food with traditional products for processed foods. Traditional raw materials have also been lost to make bows and embers for decoration. In addition, deforestation has caused several dams to dry up. Those that remained are with their water volumes very low. In this sense, the Boui Marãiwatsede Association proposes the cultivation of native and fruit plants, aiming at the recovery of degraded areas and the main springs in the Marãiwatsede IT, with the planting of buriti, babassu and other species of the region, in order to contribute to the increase of the volume of water, as well as resources for food and materials for the production of handicrafts, ornaments and rituals. TI Marãiwatsede is near the municipality of Alto Boa Vista (MT). The predominant original vegetation is of Cerrado, but the area today is occupied by brachiaria grass.

In addition, the main REDD + policy came with Law 9.878, in 2013, which established the State REDD + System (SISREDD +) to promote the progressive, consistent and sustained reduction of deforestation and other activities that emit greenhouse gases covering all the biomes of Mato Grosso, with a view to achieving the goals of the PPCDQ, the State Policy on Climate Change, and the National Policy on Climate Change and other pertinent legislation. The law allowed for specific governance to be established with the establishment of the REDD + Governing Board and made it possible to obtain payment for results. There are several perspectives being worked on today for this funding. The Althelia Fund is for example developing a Private Interest Manifestation (MIP) to structure a carbon credit trading platform, an impact fund (see note on p.6) and a contribution to finalize the REDD + system. The Permian Fund is discussing the management of the mosaic of conservation units in northwest Mato Grosso with REDD + resources. UK KFW and BEIS are in the final stages of a total investment of € 178 million through the REDD + for Early Movers (RE / MT) program to reward and recognize the change mitigation effort REDD pioneers in Mato Grosso.

The project will benefit about 120 traditional Morrocan families spread across 15 communities in an area of ​​11,000 hectares. Families depend on water to continue their productive activities. They are now supplied with well water, which is also used to process and benefit the mesocarp of the babassu that makes the flour, which in turn is used in the production of breads and cookies provided for the feeding of 580 school students rural community Buriti. The group, through the Regional Association of Extractive Producers of the Pantanal, intends to organize and invest in the processing of other native products of the Cerrado and in the production of horticultural crops. But for that, it is necessary to repair these problems. In this way, the project The socio-biodiversity of Cerrado da Morraria as a heritage of the future aims to contribute to generate knowledge and learning about the impacts of socio-environmental degradation and to enable actions to repair, recover and preserve natural resources with a view to the sustainability of Morraria communities.

Project located in the São Marcos Indigenous Land, jurisdiction of the municipality of Barra do Garças (MT). This is a project of the Natural Resources Management Window.

It was defined that it is necessary for the people to identify their potentialities and their most vulnerable areas, with a view to their appropriation of techniques for the sustainable management of the Cerrado's water resources, fauna and flora for territorial protection and management. Therefore, the idea is to carry out a socioenvironmental diagnosis through anthropological and environmental reports of the Namunkurá region, based on the recognition of the impacts of the projects implemented in the region, aiming at the construction of strategies of action and confrontation, and ensuring actions for political, generational empowerment and gender. The actions also include video records of the memories and knowledge about the fauna, flora and water resources of the region. Led by the Namunkurá Xavante Association (NAX), the project Tsirãpré Dzawidzé: protection of the Cerrado involves etnapoints, highlighting important sites for the A'uwe Uptabi People. Thus, it is expected that it will benefit all the villages of the São Marcos Indigenous Land, which covers a total of 188,478,2600 hectares: Aldeia Namunkurá, São Luís, São Gabriel, Nossa Senhora Auxiliadora, Santíssima Trindade, Nossa Senhora Aparecida and Divina Providência.
