Presentation on theme: "May, 2009 ENHANCING GLOBAL SUSTENTABILITY THROUGH GLOBAL COOPERATION BRAZIL."— Presentation transcript:


2 Historical Data -Atlantic Forest – 1950 y -Linhares reserve, an area of 23.000 ha in order to prevent the fires in the region, 50.000 ha today -Mr. Erling Lorentzen, from Norway, began the eucalyptus forestation, in areas that were already degraded. -Aracruz Celluloses origin -Private investments from Brazil and Sweden May, 2009

3 Forest Park of the Tubarão Harbor, in the city of Vitoria, Espirito Santo, the first in the world that was built inside of a representative sample of the Atlantic Forest, having not only the objective of showing how to recover a forest but, regarding to education skills too.

4 -Im remembering these facts with the intention to show that in that time neither the word ECOLOGY existed at that time and how important is the vision and the leader presence to change minds and concepts. -Sustainable Development concept with all its components present – environmental, economic and social, applied for the first time in the Vale do Rio Doce Company and the Aracruz Cellulose. May, 2009

5 Amazonia Carajas Project –Vale do Rio Doce Company -the biggest project on integration of mining, rail, harbor and ocean navigation -the concept of SD applied on a large scale -Dr. Stephan Schmidheiny develop the theory of Sustainable Development presented in the Rio 92 Conference. May, 2009

6 Concepts and practices that drive the Carajas Project -First project with a big dimension in Amazonia, sustainable development concepts applied. -GEAMAN - a council formed by the best recognized scientists of Brazil -cooperation of international scientists May, 2009

7 The misunderstanding about the Carajas Projects May, 2009

8 The actual Carajas Project -preserved one million of ha of forest around the mining area -a city of 250.000 habitants linked to the project built in the forest -gardens -houses adapted to the climate of Amazon -the ecology in the curriculum of the schools - it has a cultural life -no poverty -the best hospital in Amazon -people there has the forest in their day life, everyone knows that the sustainability depends on the forest preservation May, 2009

9 Private companies -special emphasis to the application of sustainable development in its systemic conception, in the projects of infrastructure - petroleum, gas, energy generation, door- to-door integrated logistics and others -a program of up-to-date research -Brazilian scientists and international cooperation May, 2009

10 I-Bio – Instituto Bio- Atlantica - a non-profit corporation -formed by the most important companies in Brazil like Petrobras, EBX, Vale do Rio Doce, Aracruz, Votorantin, Klabin among others -foreign members as DUPONT, International Conservancy, Natural Conservancy -has a program of research and development. May, 2009

11 Rio Doce Watershed Today Total area: 8.3 MM hectars (83 K km 2 ) Planted forests: ~ 200-300 K ha Forest Cover (native + planted + perm. crops): ~ 17% Economy: mining, celulose, agriculture, pig iron, steel (~ 3% of Brazilian GDP) Environment: 87% of riparian areas degraded less than 1% protected river flow reduced by 70% since 1940 Population: ~ 3.4 million inhabitants Logistics: railroads, highways, ports, energy

12 Cattle productivity: 1 animal per 2 to 5 hectars More than 70% of the properties lack proper documentation 1,1 million hectares of permanent protected areas deficit (law requirement) River flow reduction Rural migration 80% of the watersheds surface transformed in pasture and degraded land Flagship species at risk of extinction (f. ex. northern muriqui - Brachyteles hypoxantus) Indicators of the Non-sustainable model at the Rio Doce Watershed © Russel Mittermeier

13 General Objective: Promote, through forest restoration and the creation of incentives for sustainable land use activities, particularly forest plantations, the development of an attractive environment for private investors, in a planned and integrated manner, generating economic and social results and environmental conservation in rural areas Rio Doce Sustainable Watershed Program

14 Plan for the Sustainable Development of the Rio Doce Watershed Pilot Projects Strategys Architecture Credibility Scale Visibility Partnerships Productive models Payment for Environmental Services (carbon and water) models Forest Business Model for the Rio Doce Basin Rio Doce Sustainable Watershed Program - STRATEGY

15 Riparian area deficit Low productivity pasture Degraded soils Low productivity agriculture Polluted waters Legal Reserve 5-6% SORCE: Adapted from APREMAVI Typical property at the Rio Doce Watershed today: Infrastruture

16 Restores riparian areas Ranching Forest management Reforestation and fruits High yield agriculture Aquaculture Infrastruture Ecoturism, bee keeping Legal Reserve 20% SORCE: APREMAVI Future model property at the Rio Doce Watershed: ACTIVITIES

17 Water and carbon payments Rural Credit Rural Credit and Carbon Rural Credit Rural Credit Own Capital Water and carbon Payments Reserva Legal 20% FONTE: APREMAVI Future model property at the Rio Doce Watershed: FUNDING

18 Programa Iberoamericano de Ciencia y Tecnología para el Desarrollo Instituto BIOATLANTICA
