Since its foundation, Floresta Viva has sought to act as a network in order to increase the impact of its actions. In 2009, it signed the Pact for the Restoration of the Atlantic Forest, a national movement of public and private organizations to protect what remains of this biome on the coast.
Floresta Viva is also committed to contributing to the Brazilian government’s goal of reforesting 12 million hectares by 2030 (a commitment made at COP 21 in Paris). While studies provide clearer guidance on how to avoid deforestation without compromising economic development, there is still a lack of information on the most effective approaches to reforestation. This is important, as it has been proven that a developing forest has greater potential to sequester carbon than mature forests, thus contributing more to mitigating the effects of global warming.
