Amazonia SAR
Description

Amazonia SAR implements a deforestation detection system utilizing orbital imaging radar to monitor 950,000 km2 per year (23% of the Amazon biome). Of the total land monitored, 764,000 km2 is comprised of areas under the greatest pressure of deforestation, 144,000 km2 is in the state of Amapá, and an additional 5% of isolated points in the Amazon biome will be monitored due to specific demand.

Apui Coffee Project
Description

The Apuí Café initiative began in 2012 in a partnership between Idesam, 28 local producers, the state government of Amazonas, Apuí prefecture and local private entrepreneurs. The project received support from the Vale and Natura Fund, and focuses on the agroforestry production of coffee which combines commercial production and native forest. Since 2012, coffee productivity in Apuí has increased from nine to twenty-two coffee sacks per hectare. In 2015 Agroforstry Apuí Coffee was launched as the first environmentally sustainable coffee produced in the Brazilian Amazon. In its first year alone, 4.5 tons of coffee, or 18,000 packages, were sold at more than 20 retailers and 50 events and fairs. Today, local producers are seeking to obtain organic certification of their properties.

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

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.
