Brazil’s Atlantic Forest faces increased pressure from land-use demands such as timber extraction, agricultural production, and urban sprawl. The Atlantic Forest is a common and shared resource among diverse stakeholders, thus requiring an integrated and holistic approach to reconcile the needs of agricultural production, economic development and biodiversity conservation. The Brazilian Forest Dialogue, in collaboration with The Forests Dialogue (TFD), believes that providing a trust-based platform where different actors can engage openly in conversation and negotiation will lead to a long-term solution to maintain the sustainability of the Atlantic Forest landscape.
