Globally, many companies have committed to removing deforestation from their supply chains by 2020, but they are struggling to find effective solutions to meet these goals. More and more emphasis is being placed on the jurisdictional approach as a potential means
to support corporate goals and drive sustainable development. The jurisdictional approach encourages companies to collaborate with local governments, communities and producers in their sourcing regions. Find in this document a strategy to achieve low-risk sourcing in Mato Grosso.
Widespread degradation of tropical forests is caused by a variety of disturbances that interact in ways that are not well understood. To explore potential synergies between edge effects, fire and windstorm damage as causes of Amazonian forest degradation, we quantified vegetation responses to a 30‐min, high‐intensity windstorm that in 2012, swept through a large‐scale fire experiment that borders an agricultural field. Our pre‐ and postwindstorm measurements include tree mortality rates and modes of death, above‐ground biomass, and airborne LiDAR‐based estimates of tree heights and canopy disturbance (i.e., number and size of gaps). The experimental area in the southeastern Amazonia includes three 50‐ha plots established in 2004 that were unburned (Control), burned annually (B1yr), or burned at 3‐year intervals (B3yr).
This map shows the Amazon according the land tenure: private and public areas (protected areas, indigenous lands, undesignated areas, and rural settlements).
There are 65 million hectares of undesignated areas in the Legal Amazon. Their current status increases their vulnerability to land grabbing and illegal timber extraction. It is urgent to destinate those lands to protection.
