Supporting small and medium sized farms in the Amazon and Atlantic Forests to implement low-carbon agriculture, protecting forests and biodiversity. Mitigate climate change in the Cerrado biome and improve environment and natural resource management through the promotion of farmer compliance with the Brazilian Forest Code. Increase the environmental registration of rural holdings and promote controlled burning, prevention of forest fires, replacement of burning by more sustainable agricultural practices and strengthen firefighting capacity. An extension to the project in 2017 aims to address the barriers farmers face accessing low carbon agriculture credit. It will provide loans for low carbon agriculture technologies and practices such as, but not limited to, establishing integrated systems (crop-livestock-forestry) and reforestation, including conservation of natural forests at risk of deforestation by small and medium-scale farmers).
