Law 12805. The law establishes the National Policy on Integration of Farming, Livestock and Forestry to mitigate deforestation caused by these activities, supporting best practices that promote the development of these sectors in a sustainable manner, ultimately contributing to the recovery of degraded areas.
The law also foresees the promotion of environmental education, targeting schools and agents involved in the production and/or trade of agricultural and livestock products. In additions, it proposes fostering activities of research, innovation and technological transfer that meet the general objective of the Policy. The programme is part of the Low Carbon Emission Agriculture Programme.
