This project is carried out by CSF-Brasil itself and aims to analyze the economic viability and environmental gains of a possible implementation of the Environmental Reserve Quota Maranhão State, in addition to investigating the opportunities for implementation of CRAs in the states of Tocantins and Bahia, through engagement in political articulation actions, data collection (land prices, agricultural profits, legal reserve deficits, native vegetation cover). and location of priority conservation areas) and economic analysis.

The Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund is a joint initiative of the French Development Agency, Conservation International, the European Union, Global Environmental Management, the Government of Japan, the MacArthur Foundation and the World Bank. A key goal is to ensure that civil society is involved in biodiversity conservation.
The Biomes Project aims to develop and incorporate tree solutions for sustainable use of Brazilian farms and to enable farmers and technicians as potential implementers and multipliers of these solutions. Regarding the new Forest Code, this project seeks to integrate the supply of agricultural and forest products, increasing the possibility of economic gains linked to the conservation of the environment. The project, the result of a partnership with the Brazilian Confederation of Agriculture and Livestock (CNA) and the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (Embrapa), is implemented in the six Brazilian Biomes (Pampa, Pantanal, Amazon, Caatinga, Cerrado and Atlantic Forest) and It is managed through national and regional coordination. Embrapa Cerrado is responsible for managing activities in the Cerrado.
Between the daysJune 25 and 27, 2018, at Embrapa Headquarters in Brasilia (DF) the environmental adaptation course of the rural property was held, which included the realization of the Project Biomes, Brazilian Forest Service, Secretariat of Extractivism and Rural Development, Ministry of the Environment , National Confederation of Agriculture and EMBRAPA.
Environmental Adequacy Course
The course aimed to test a proposed menu for a course in distance education so that farmers, technicians multipliers and professionals can work on the environmental adequacy of rural properties, in support of the Environmental Regularization Program provided for in native vegetation protection legislation. In which analysts and researchers from EMBRAPA, SFB, SEDR-MMA, ICMBio, EMATER, SENAR, CNA, DF Secretariat of Agriculture, SEMA, IBRAM participated, among others, with activities in the analysis and implementation in restoration, restorers, environmental managers, that is, important actors for the development of the Environmental Regularization Program. 70 people were expected to attend.
