MT Productive Program

In 2023, the MT Productive Program (or MT Produtivo”) was approved by the Legislative Assembly of Mato Grosso and the World Bank. The program is a loan of USD 80 million with a counterpart of USD 20 million from the state of Mato Grosso to support family farming in the region. The Secretary of Family Farming (of “SEAF”) will be responsible for executing the loan, which will aim to support the strengthening of approximately 16 thousand family producers, combined with environmental and land regularization. Hence, the MT Produtivo program contributes to the goals of the PCI “Include” axis.

Programa Global REDD Early Movers (REM)

In 2012, the German government through the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) established the Global REDD Early Movers Program (REM). Th program provides support to countries and states that have implemented pioneering initiatives in forest conservation and reducing emissions from deforestation and degradation.

Launched at the Rio+20 Conference in June 2012, the REDD Early Movers Program (REM) is an innovative initiative that rewards pioneers in forest conservation and climate change mitigation. It is aimed at countries or subnational jurisdictions that have developed initiatives to protect forests and/or reduce emissions from deforestation and degradation.

The Program provides results-based payments for reducing verified emissions from deforestation, thus becoming a REDD initiative, in accordance with the decisions made in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

The actions of the REM Program contribute directly to the goals of the PCI strategy, including funding for structuring and strengthening the PCI Institute. The phase 2 of the REM program is scheduled to begin in 2024, when a further EUR 30 million will be allocated to continue the program until 2029.

Partnership for Green Economy (PAGE)

The Partnership for Action for a Green Economy - PAGE - supports countries interested in advancing towards more inclusive economies, which seek to use resources efficiently and with low carbon emissions. In 2012, the final document of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development Rio+20 - "The future we want", recognized the Green Economy as a channel for the promotion of sustainable development and the eradication of poverty. At the time, there was a call for the United Nations to support countries interested in the transition to greener and more inclusive economies. In response to this call, five UN agencies: UNIDO, UNEP, ILO, UNDP and UNITAR - created PAGE - Partnership for Action for a Green Economy, with the objective of meeting the growing demands of countries that seek to develop and implement Green Economy strategies in their territory. The Green Economy is one that results in the improvement of human well-being and social equality, while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological imbalances. After the launch of the PCI Strategy - Produce, Conserve and Include, in December/2015, at COP 21 in Paris, the State of Mato Grosso in 2016, through Decree No. 739 of 11/10/2016, signed a partnership with PAGE and the program was started with the objective of contributing to the equitable and sustainable transformation of economic structures aiming to achieve environmental sustainability, create decent jobs, reduce poverty and improve human well-being. Mato Grosso was the first subnational state in the world to receive support from PAGE.
