Cattle ranching in Brazil accounts for nearly 24% of global tropical deforestation, while providing livelihoods for millions of ranchers in the Amazon and Cerrado regions. Efforts to dismantle the foundational barriers to curtail deforestation must be designed and championed from leaders within the region to galvanize widespread action. In response, the government in Pará is spearheading a new program to tackle emissions and deforestation caused by cattle ranching, uniting diverse stakeholders under a common vision.
