His main interests are in modelling agricultural systems, particularly modelling the role of Brazilian livestock systems on deforestation and in climate change mitigation.

Furthermore, the major drivers of sustainability in agriculture were the demands of the food market. Introduction The occupation of geographic space and territory has been a constant concern of agribusiness and society and, consequently, of public policies. The latitude Eq 2 and longitude Eq 3 midpoint were obtained by multiplying the sum of the geographic coordinates of the municipality and their production divided by the number of municipalities for each year.

The spatial midpoint of production in the country was calculated for each year to assess the direction of production in the country. These reflect the highest variance in the discriminant model and provide a summary of the separation of the municipalities. Funding Statement These authors have no support or funding to report.

Recently, soy production has also moved into the Amazonian forest [ 16 ]. The Midwest and northern regions are highlighted for their increase in cattle production over the period studied, in particular, the states of Mato Grosso do Sul, Goias, Mato Grosso Midwest region and Roraima northern region.

This is also the mainstay of Brazil’s plan for the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions [ 3 ], the environmental effect of animal production was crucial in the promotion of sustainability of agriculture production [ 12 ]. The pro-intensification policies such as credit provision for recover degraded pastures and improved pasture management and investment in more intensive production systems must be accompanied by an implementation and enforcement of such policies [ 3 ].

In the livestock sector, the animal productivity is related to food intake and weight gain efficiency, thereby generating methane emissions. Developing a nationally appropriate mitigation measure from the greenhouse gas GHG abatement potential from livestock production in the Brazilian Cerrado.

Cattle production in Brazil from to was spatialized, and the annual midpoint of production was calculated. Further mitigation targets available here will be announced at COP21, including a commitment to zero net deforestation by A spatial analysis of the rationale for beef production.

Persistence of cattle ranching in the Brazilian Amazon: In the northern region, because the original herd was small, the initial acceleration — was high with the migration of cattle production from other regions, but in numeric terms, the herd size has only become expressive within the last 10 years.

This explains the movement of the cattle herd to the northern states of Brazil, as the land that had been previously occupied by livestock now produces soybeans and corn. Importantly, these clusters do not indicate the same group of municipalities in the two analyses.


Mitig Adapt Strat Gl. Acceleration in production in the northern region of Brazil has remained strong over the years.

Geographical distribution of sheep breeds in Brazil and their relationship with climatic and environmental factors as risk classification for conservation. Accessed 10 January These maps were generated on a continuous scale, as these represent differences between two periods, presented as the beginning of one period until the end of the next period p.

These two regions are also important for acceleration in production, which is specifically highlighted in the Northern states of Para, Roraima and Acre Northern region as well as the Anuallpec state of Mato Grosso. Movement of anuallec production within a country or region has implications for genetics, adaptation, well-being, nutrition, and production logistics, 213 in continental-sized countries, such as Brazil.

Clusters formed according to relative growth and acceleration data showed that a small part of the municipalities is responsible for the largest relative growth Table 3cluster 4 and acceleration in growth Table 4cluster 3.

In fact restoration offers a mitigation potential in reduced CO2-eq per year around 20 times greater than the other aunalpec combined. These systems are based on sharing and maximizing the use of resources and the synergism between them, ensuring environmental balance and reducing trading risks by diversifying farm activities model.

Public policies can reduce tropical deforestation: All of these factors reinforce the need for seeking more efficient systems of land use with constant monitoring of its dynamics.
