The demand for increased agricultural production has led to expansion of production areas through deforestation in various regions of Brazil. In the face of this major environmental problem arises the MIDIAGEO REDD-BRAZIL solution.
This program aims to generate income through the Preservation of Native Forests and the increasing of production using smaller areas. Through the articulation of individuals and institutions in the search of a sustainability standard that would align the environmental, social and economic links consistently and resulting in a sustainable model of performance in their areas of coverage, focused on environmental preservation and improvements in the life quality of the producers and regional development.
This forest protection project uses a methodology that calculates through the, REDD program (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation), forest carbon stocks in areas with native forests of the region, ie of natural forests each property, not including planted forests to commercial purposes, differing from the REDD projects (Reducing emissions from Deforestation and Degradation) by not worrying about the emissions curve calculations, since the project is total preservation areas. They will also be included in the work at the stage of monitoring, prevention systems and adjusting for leaks (leakages).
This model is recognized by international institutions such as Standard Conversion environmental assets of Forests in Transaction instruments. We focus on viabilize agricultural activities in rural properties with the use of existing areas in the scope of local, avoiding the spread of deforestation and burning of forest reserves.
