Now it’s law: Pará must restore vegetation on 5.6 million hectares
After being announced during COP28, the Native Vegetation Recovery Plan of Pará (PRVN-PA) was presented at the 2023 Paraense Forum on Climate Change and Adaptation in Belém. This plan has a highly ambitious goal of restoring 5.65 million hectares by 2030, which is approximately 10 times the area of the Federal District.
It includes more than 225 actions aimed at bringing environmental, social, and economic benefits, such as climate change mitigation, the creation of green jobs, and ensuring food sovereignty not only for Pará but for the entire Brazil. Under the leadership of the State Secretariat of Environment of Pará, the development of the Native Vegetation Recovery Plan involved more than forty organizations, including government agencies, research institutions, the private sector, indigenous peoples, Quilombolas, and traditional populations.
The IIS actively participated in the organization, integration, and formulation of the plan based on its accumulated experience with the construction of the National Policy for the Recovery of Native Vegetation, the Proveg.
The PRVN has a genuine commitment to the Amazon and will support the state in recovering its areas, also assisting Brazil in achieving its goals.
