Pacheco P., Poccard-Chapuis R., Garcia Drigo I., Piketty M.G., Thales M.. 2016. In : AC and SD 2016 Agri-Chains and Sustainable Development: linking local and global dynamics. Montpellier : CIRAD, p. 25-26. International Conference on Agri-Chains and Sustainable Development, 2016-12-12/2016-12-14, Montpellier (France).

This project provides tools and knowledge to support local public and private actors in the transition towards more sustainable agricultural production (beef, milk, grains, timber, pepper, fruits,etc.), and natural resources conservation, through enhanced landscape governance in the ¿Green Municipality¿ of Paragominas, State of Pará, in the Brazilian Amazon. This research will foster innovative partnerships between the public and private spheres and help integrate production options within the cattle, timber and agricultural sectors, small and large farmers. Ultimately, this project aims to reduce deforestation and greenhouse gas emissions through the development of more intensive production and nutrient recycling. This project supports multi-stakeholder dialogue at municipal and state levels, also leading to greater social inclusion. Local multi-stakeholder platforms will receive data, analysis and options needed for more informed policy decision-making. The research will also facilitate knowledge exchange between local stakeholders and public agencies at state and federal levels, as well as business platforms supporting sustainability in the Brazilian Amazon.
