24 Bahorure Project

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.

93 List of Illegal Deforestation - LDI

The Illegal Deforestation List of the State of Pará prohibits the granting of permits, authorizations, services or any other type of public benefit or incentive by the entities of the State Public Administration to activities located in areas illegally deforested in the State of Pará. The LDI is the official consultation tool of the State of Pará.

It is the legal instrument for the dissemination of illegally deforested areas in the State, managed by SEMAS/PA for consultation by state public agencies and the general public. The creation of the LDI aims to combat illegal deforestation carried out in the state territory, favor rural producers who carry out their activities in accordance with environmental legislation and collaborate with the commitment made by Governor Simão Jatene during Rio + 20 to achieve zero net deforestation by 2020.

With the release of this new policy, it is expected that the private sector (in particular food processing, banks, grain buyers and agribusiness) will consult the embargo list to avoid the marketing of products from embargoed areas, prohibited in the legislation.

100 Memorandum of Understanding Between Aprosoja, ABIOVE, FEFAC, FEDIOL & IDH

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.

112 Plan for Prevention and Control of Deforestation (PPCD-AP)

The Tactical-Operational Action Plan brings together actions for the containment of deforestation in the Legal Amazon and the feasibility of alternatives for protection and sustainable use of the forest. The State of Amazonas is in its third phase of the Plan (2018 to 2020).

After the launching of its 1st Phase (2008), the reduction in annual rates of deforestation was notable, with values ​​close to 500 km² remaining for seven years, but from 2015 onwards it increased again, reaching 2016 to 1,129 km², increasing 176% compared to 2009. The 2nd Phase of the Plan (2012 to 2015) was not affirmed as a development strategy for the state, remaining with a sectorial character and parallel to the main economic policies. The State stayed for two years without updating its plan, resuming in 2017 the elaboration of its 3rd Phase, recognizing its strategic importance with efforts to contribute to the national goal of reducing deforestation, corroborating the scope of the reduction in 80% until the year 2020.

The Plan is divided into three axes ((i) monitoring, control and surveillance; (ii) territorial and territorial planning; and (iii) agroforestry production chains and sustainable practices), which comprise six macro actions. During the year 2018, mainly actions foreseen in the Plan related to the Axis 2 (Command and Environmental Control) were executed, referring to macro licensing and environmental fiscalization actions. As a result of the actions already carried out, there is the Amazonas Legal Program, which had its first edition in the municipality of Apuí, where the Rural Environmental Licensing and Licensing Unit (CAR) occurred with a historical result of more than 687 rural producers served, 472 applications for Environmental Operating License (LO), 120 records in the CAR.

Besides Amazonas Legal, there were also two enforcement actions in the south of the state. As a result it is possible to observe a reduction 14% 1 in the estimated deforestation rate for the year 2018 in relation to the high rate presented in the year 2016. The result of these actions will be most seen in 2019, as the annual rate of deforestation consolidated by Prodes has differentiated intervals, which always cover August to July of the following year.

The Action Plan for Prevention and Control of Deforestation and Burning in Mato Grosso (PPCDQ) is more operational. Since 2006 it has had two phases of implementation (2006 to 2010 and 2011 to 2016) and was renamed in its third phase to the Plan of Action for Prevention and Control of Deforestation and Forest Fires of the State of Mato Grosso (PPCDIF / MT). It represents a set of strategic actions to prevent and control deforestation and forest fires in Mato Grosso structured in four lines of action with their objectives: Territorial Planning, Monitoring and Control, Promotion of Sustainable Activities and Governance and Executive Management [1] . Under the PPCDIF and in addition to federal instruments deforestation monitoring of forest areas in the Amazon region (PRODES and DETER-INPE), the State of Mato Grosso through the State Department of Environment (SEMA) has a system that performs monitoring and quantification of deforestation in the entire territory of Mato Grosso including forest and non-forest areas.

The Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Deforestation and Burnings established a framework of coordinated actions at the state level in order to achieve the voluntary state goal of reducing forest emissions, which is in line with the federal target. In addition, the PPCDQ seeks to increase the State's sustainable development efforts. The first Phase of the Plan was from 2010-2013 and the second Phase was from 2014-2016. The third phase is currently being developed for the period 2017-2019 with the support of the ICV and the IPAM.

The initiative will also bring the possibility of recovery of degraded areas, enrichment of the forests with planting of native and fruit trees, improvement in the quality of air, water, plants and the history of the people. This will be done through the construction of a nursery of seedlings in Aldeia Cabeceira do Azul and the collection of seeds, planting of seedlings and construction of fences to preserve the buritizais in Aldeias Cabeceira do Azul, Pakuenra, Paikum and Kuiakware. Throughout the two years of the project, it is planned to plant five thousand saplings and other native Cerrado species, recovering and reforesting an estimated area of ​​100 hectares and building 10 km of fences. Thus, the idea is to recover the buritizais and the riparian forests of the sources of the rivers of the territory, isolating them to avoid the trampling of cattle, and to promote the improvement in the quality of life of the town, guaranteeing the preservation of the culture and the history of the town Bakairi.

125 Prevention of Deforestation and Fires in Mato Grosso

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). Thus, through Decree No. 1,490 published on May 15, 2018, in the Official Gazette of the State of Mato Grosso the PPCDIF / MT 3rd Phase (2017-2020) was officially instituted (http://www.sema.mt.gov , which aims to reduce deforestation and forest fires in the state by means of command actions. and control, territorial planning and promotion of sustainable activities.

In the Plan, the State of Mato Grosso will seek as a voluntary goal, the elimination of illegal deforestation in forests until 2020 and also the reduction of 80% (eighty percent) of forest deforestation in the period 2017 to 2020, considering the baseline of 5,515 km² (five thousand, seven hundred and fifteen square kilometers), related to the average deforestation occurred in the years 2001 to 2010.

127 Produce - Conserve - Include Strategy

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.

134 Project 'From the Eye of the Forest' (Projeto De olho na Floresta)

Monitoring of forest cover from high spatial and temporal resolution.

The Eye of the Forest Project uses a robust and secure automated structure to ensure continuous monitoring of the forest. It provides weekly alerts of deforestation evidence throughout the state to obtain the current mapping of the forest and its deforestation, subsidizing effective deforestation control and enforcement actions. Using high-resolution images from Planet satellites, images from the territory of Pará are made available every 3 days. The platform allows for easy visualization and analysis of the areas of deforestation, allowing for rapid analysis overlayed with geospatial information such as Forest Management Areas, Licensed Areas, CAR (Area of Property, Legal Reserve, APP), Conservation Unit, or any area of interest. The platform allows the generation of specific reports and the sending of both alerts and legal notifications. Printed reports show mapped areas and the amount of deforestation, including all the information generated by the processed image processing. Through the project every citizen can monitor the forest monitoring and alerts of evidence of deforestation, participating in and contributing to the maintenance and recovery of the forest. The Project is available on the SEMAS home page and also through a smartphone application.

146 Recovery of degraded area

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. The project will be implemented in the villages Aopa, Etewawe, Madzaze and Marawatsede, and the monitoring of the work done from the village Aopa.

The declaration formalizes our commitment to continue to reduce deforestation, to develop partnerships with private sector initiatives that leverage the opportunities available through jurisdictional programs, and to channel, in a timely and effective manner, performance-based funds to forest-based economic development that respects forests for producers, foresters, farmers, ranchers, indigenous peoples, local communities and other forest stakeholders. To achieve this goal, it is imperative that we have greater access to financial and technical support and, more importantly, domestic and international market and non-market opportunities for emissions reductions achieved by our programs.

163 State System of REDD + (SISREDD +)

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.

198 Tsirãpré Dzawidzé: protection of the Cerrado

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.
