Economic analysis is used as a tool to optimize the production methods and public policies, in addition to conserving and valuing natural heritage, in a perspective of sustainable development.
Our work can be exemplified through the wide range of projects, such as the identification of economically viable models for rural producers, which enable income from recovered areas and strategies for promoting large-scale recovery, or the study of REDD + strategies (Reduction Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation, plus Sustainable Forest Management) to assess possible mechanisms for reconciling agricultural expansion, avoiding deforestation and understanding the implementation challenges with a focus on the financial requirements and management of potential risks.
