Against the backdrop of international financial and economic crisis, Brazil has maintained and grown its economy. Despite a downturn in growth since 2011, it has become the sixth largest economy in the world. The Workers’ Party, holding federal office since 2003 with President Dilma Roussef, continues to drive income redistribution and develop the country’s domestic market with the aim of eradicating poverty, and pursue a strong export presence notably in agrifoods and ores.
When it comes to environmental challenges, notably in the Amazon, this policy signals greater impetus given to development measures (mining, revision of the Forest Code to make it less conservationist) and infrastructure building (notably hydroelectricity). However, even though clearing continues to slow with stronger government control, the dead end in the international climate negotiations and notably the negotiations on REDD (reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation) is tending to call into question Brazil’s strategic decision to be a model student when it comes to conservation. Developing the forest economy as a way to consolidate protected areas is still a challenge.
In the Brazilian Amazon, where pressure on forest resources is high, GRET supports sustainable forest management and stabilizing agricultural systems in pioneer front zones with real benefits for local populations. In 2012, GRET notably launched a new project addressing forest policies in Amapá State.
