Produce, Conserve and Include Initiative in Mato Grosso
A Brazilian case study on jurisdictional approaches
In 2015, the state of Mato Grosso in Brazil, established the Produce, Conserve and Include (PCI)
Institute, one of the most well-known jurisdictional approaches in the world. The PCI Institute is an independent non-profit institution that aims to ensure the effectiveness of the Mato Grosso sustainable development strategy. The PCI Institute has engaged multiple stakeholders to achieve the collective goals of the environmental and rural agenda. Mato Grosso is a valuable case study as it has promoted responsible sourcing from companies connecting their supply chain efforts to the PCI strategy.
CDP has worked with the PCI Institute to present the key factors needed to implement a jurisdictional approach that engages with private sector investments and REDD+. This case study highlights how to implement a Jurisdictional Approach (JA) by sharing four main learnings from Mato Grosso, which include: establishing a decentralized governance structure; multiple funding streams; an open and recurrent multi-stakeholder dialogue; and tracking and transparently disclosing information.
