"The Sustainable Amazon Plan (PAS), established by the federal government in partnership with the states of Amazonia, was created with the aim to define guidelines for sustainable development in the Brazilian Amazon, proposing strategies and lines of action that aim for the social, economic and environmental development of the region. Thus, it prioritizes the generation of employment and income for populations that live in the forest through the implementation of new and sustainable economic activities in the region and reduction of social inequalities. The Plan has five lines of action: (1) sustainable production with innovation and competitiveness, (2) environmental management and land-use planning, (3) governance, social inclusion and citizenship, (4) implementation of infrastructure for development, and (5) the establishment of a new economic standard. These actions should lead to the construction of technical and economic bases for sustainable development, as well as solving the territorial irregularities existing in various parts of the Amazon."
