Produce, Conserve, Include Strategy: Providing Proof of Concept of the Jurisdictional Approach in Mato Grosso, Brazil

Produce, Conserve, Include (PCI) (2019)

One jurisdictional initiative, the “Produce, Conserve, Include (PCI) strategy,” aims to increase productivity while maintaining native vegetation cover and including smallholders and indigenous and traditional populations across Mato Grosso, Brazil—which produces nearly 30% of Brazil’s soy and has the largest cattle herd in the country. Meeting these aggressive targets requires a multistakeholder effort that brings together government, civil society, producers, and companies. Stakeholders ensure that local laws, regional efforts, and corporate policies work in concert to catalyze reduced deforestation at scale.
