Targets, carbon stocks and deforestation reduction: Proposed benefit sharing in the Brazilian Amazon linking national and sub-national targets

  1. 1. Targets, carbon stocks and deforestation reduction: Proposed benefit sharing in the Brazilian Amazon linking national and sub-national targets sub- Paulo Moutinho moutinho@ipam.org.br www.ipam.org.br Forest Day, Dec 13th 2009, Copenhagen
  2. 2. BRAZIL 60% = EMISSIONS BY DEFORESTATION (~ 170 MTC/YEAR; Amazon, 2008) 40% = FOSSIL FUEL (100 MTC/YEAR, ref. 2008): > 1.9 million ha/ano ~ 68 million ha deforested 18% of the brazilian Amazon
  3. 3. REDD in the Amazon/Opportunities • National Action Plan to Prevent and Control Deforestation in the Amazon (new phase, operating since 2004) • Amazon Fund, a voluntary-based mechanism that receives donations in order to compensate deforestation reduction and invest in prevention and control (58 projects submitted, 5 approved) • National Plan on Climate Change – voluntary targets for emissions reduction from deforestation in the Amazon (<80% up to 2020) • Amazon States start to develop State Plans to prevent and control Deforestation in the Amazon (4 Major states = 85% forest Cover and represents 75% of the deforestation have already announced the state plans with targets and baselines analogue to NPCC ) • National Target for emission reduction (~40% by 2020 or 17% below 2005)
  4. 4. BRAZILIAN NATIONAL PLAN ON CLIMATE CHANGE Avoid emissions ~ 4.8 billion tons of 19.500 Km² CO2 between 2006 and 2020, considering a biomass carbon stock of 100 tC/ha. Reduce deforestation by 80% by 2020 Available at: http://www.mma.gov.br/estruturas/smcq_climaticas/_arquivos/executive_summary_pnmc.pdf
  5. 5. Deforestation Rates (km2) in Brazilian amazonia (1988-2009) Lowest rate since 1988
  6. 6. The Amazon States
  7. 7. How can a fair and equitable system for sharing financial benefits works from the national REDD mechanism to sub-national sub- initiatives?
  8. 8. REDD in the Amazon Changing the driving forces of deforestation Identifying activities that contribute to the maintenance of standing forests Recognition of the rights to the lands, territories and resources which IPLC have traditionally owned or occupied
  9. 9. 30% Carbon Stock = 13 billionTC Source: Soares Filho, 2009, no published data Avoided Deforestation = 5 billion TC (by 2050)
  10. 10. REDD in the Amazon (REDD projects ?)
  11. 11. Conecting subnational to national targets Assumptions • Amazon States should commit to deforestation reduction targets in State deforestation Plan. • State targets must be consistent and integrated to the National targets proposed by NPCC • If all Amazon states adopt the same baseline method and the same criteria for defining targets, NPCC will have full compliance with its target • If all states reduce their deforestation below their respective target the country will have additionality in relation to the NPCC
