A pathway to forest protection in Amazonas, Brazil

19 July 2021, 9:40 BST

The Government of Amazonas, Brazil, has targets in place to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 46% by 2030, and 95% by 2050. With the support of the Climate Pathway Project, the government has been developing a transformational emissions reduction pathway to achieve these goals.

Agriculture, forestry and other land use (AFOLU) is the largest emitting sector in the state, and so the emissions reduction pathway places a focus on nature-based solutions, including:

  • Forest protection
  • Intensive and sustainable argo-livestock activities
  • Forestry expansion

The government firmly believes that acting on climate change, while also preserving natural resources, will improve the wealth of its citizens in a sustainable way.

Find out more in Amazonas' case study - available to download below in English, Español & Português - which was developed as part of the Climate Pathway Project.

The Climate Pathway Project supports state and regional governments to develop a transformational process, or ‘pathway’, to reducing emissions while supporting economic and social development, in collaboration with local communities and businesses.
