The ABC do Cerrado teaches about sustainability

O ABC do Cerrado dá lição de sustentabilidade

The alphabet of preservation and productivity. Managed by the World Bank, ABC do Cerrado (Savannah) has taught important lessons of sustainability to farmers in the Brazilian biome that has been devastated with greater greed.

The program teaches techniques of pasture recovery and crop-livestock-forest integration, with the aim of improving the lives of 13.000 rural workers and combating climate change. Low carbon agriculture is the future.
