Brazil - Integrating methane mitigation into national agriculture strategies

This project was approved in 2022 under the CCAC's call for transformative action in the agriculture sector, at the request of Brazil's Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, and Food Supply (MAPA). Brazil's agriculture sector is one of the largest in the world, and is also a major source of the country's methane emissions. Brazil has made significant commitments to reduce greenhouse gases from agriculture and livestock, including through the Brazilian Plan for Adaptation and Low Emission of Carbon in Agriculture (ABC+), and as a signatory to the Global Methane Pledge.

This project will support Brazil in reducing methane and other short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) emissions from agriculture activities by incorporating SLCP reduction measures and monitoring, reporting, and verification (MRV) systems into the ABC+ plan. Areas to be addressed include the management of residues for animal production, and the treatment of biomass residues. 

In addition, this project will seek to establish sub-national government working groups to update sub-national action plans related to ABC+ as well as the Management of Residues for Animal Production (MRPA) Plan.
