Building a Shared Public-Private Vision for the Low Emissions Development in the Amazon: The Case of Pará

Description

This webinar focused on the progress and findings from the development of the socio-economic development Amazon Now State Plan, launched by Pará government at COP-25 in Madrid, as well as highlighting ground-level initiatives from the public and private sectors that both offer opportunities to scale solutions linked to the bioeconomy; and present innovative solutions to address commodity-related deforestation.

Participants heard about the Sustainable Territories Platform, which seeks to align itself with needs and potentialities, such as local government commitments in the private sector, as they hold the potential to address systemic issues that affect the implementation of companies’ corporate sustainability commitments. The Pará government seek to encourage future collaboration and support for implementing agencies at subnational levels and the development of incentives for better performance.
