Agreement in the Steel and Charcoal Sectors
Description

Implementation of forest restoration and reforestation projects on 45,000 hectares with native species.

In Pará, an agreement was signed in 2012 between three steel industries and the Federal Public Ministry, Ibama and Para Seceretary of Enviornment (SEMAS). On of the primary objectives is the implementation of mandatory replanting and reforestation projects to guarantee the sustainable supply of charcoal for its activities, thereby reducing deforestation caused by the demand for charcoal extracted from native forests. It also provides for the recovery of deforested areas without authorization by companies, which will contribute to carbon sequestration and other environmental services. In relation to environmental liabilities, it is foreseen than 45,000,000 hectares will be reforested with native species in eight to twelve years. In addition, companies must pay compensation for the environmental damage already caused and the resources can be used for environmental and social projects, as the agreement also involves improving working conditions in coal production.

Description

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.

Description

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.
