Smallholder livelihoods and land use in the Eastern Brazilian Amazon: Lessons for REDD+ from Proambiente

This presentation explores lessons to be learned for REDD+ in the Brazilian Amazon from Proambiente, a federal pilot program that intended to reconcile smallholder production and natural resource conservation through land use planning, technical assistance and payments for environmental services. Marina Cromberg gave this presentation on 18 June 2012 at a panel discussion organised by CIFOR and partners at the ISEE 2012 Conference at Rio, which convened under the topic "Ecological Economics and Rio+20: Challenges and Contributions for a Green Economy". The panel was titled 'A comparison of intervention strategies and impacts of four incipient REDD+ initiatives in the Brazilian Amazon'. For more information, visit
