ENVIRONMENTAL SUITABILITY IN RURAL PROPERTIES: the application of the Environmental Regularization Program (PRA)



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 days June 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.
