How much does Brazil need to invest to recover 12 million hectares of forests?

In December 2015, 195 countries gathered to create the Paris Agreement, around the commitment to contain global warming within 2° C, with efforts to ensure that it does not exceed 1.5° C by the end of this century. Therefore, the Brazilian Coalition on Climate, Forests and Agriculture – a multisectoral movement consisting of more than 120 companies, business associations, civil society organizations and research centers – has commissioned multidisciplinary teams from the Choices Institute and the Center for Sustainability Studies of the Getúlio Vargas Foundation (GVces) to construct scenarios of the Brazilian reality that encompass the three major commitments listed by Brazil in its NDC.
