Abstract

This document presents the proposal of action plans defined for supply chains of cocoa, rubber, coffee and cattle-ranching to strengthen existing supply chains, improve efficiency and productivity and increase market competitiveness by promoting sustainable production and reducing deforestation and degradation of Amazon ecosystems. The actions plans include a proposal of activities, outputs and indicators, taking into account specific goals to be achieved according to the needs of the supply chain. Some conclusions of these plans are:

  • There are opportunities to increase production and improve quality to meet market requirements and demand
  • Alliances with buyers offer opportunities to promote agreements to reduce deforestation.
  • Lack of infrastructure and land tenure right are important barriers for production and commercialization of amazon products.
  • Technical assistance and rural extension is deficient and generally does not include sustainability criteria. Rural extension must be strengthened and expanded including an integrated vision of the management of the amazon ecosystems.
  • Promotion of agroforestry systems and diversification provide options to generate shirt-terms benefits and better management conditions according to the characteristics of the amazon soils.
  • Public-private partnerships for research, education and rural extension to promote sustainable production and reduction of deforestation could have an important inpact in promoting deforestation-free supply chains, promote strategies for market differentiation and generate impact at territorial level.
