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.

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.
