Letter from the executive board

In 2022, the Legal Amazon suffered its fifth consecutive annual record in forest clearing, which has caused severe social, economic and environmental damage in the region. According to Imazon’s Deforestation Alert System (SAD), from January to December, 10,573 km² were devastated, the equivalent of 3,000 soccer fields per day of forest. This was the most significant destruction in 15 years since the institute began monitoring with satellite images in 2008.

In this alarming context, Imazon’s scientific production and field projects were more widely accessed by the population, with a 17% increase in content views on the institution’s website, reaching almost 700 thousand. In the press, the data produced by the research teams was used in more than 4,000 national and international reports from more than 80 countries.

Scientific production that also contributed to the MapBiomas Network, integrated by Imazon since its creation, winner of the 2022 Skoll Award for Social Innovation. Currently, the institute contributes to the network by being responsible for two different technical coordinations: the one that produces data on land use and cover in the Amazon biome and the one that delivers information on the water surface of the whole country. The latter even has its platform called MapBiomas Água. In 2010, Imazon itself won the same award.

Also, in 2022, the institute mapped all the roads in the Amazon with the help of artificial intelligence. This unprecedented work was published in a scientific article in the international journal Remote Sensing, one of the most important in the world in remote sensing. This research showed that the roads already cut through or were within 10 km of 41% of the Amazon forest area in Brazil. This study has great potential to help public policies combat deforestation since 95% of all forest clearing takes place within 5.5 km of a road and 85% of fires are within 5 km.

“the institute mapped all the roads in the Amazon with the help of artificial intelligence, an unprecedented work published in a scientific article in the international journal Remote Sensing”

In 2022, Imazon also launched Radar Verde, a transparency indicator for Amazon’s meat chain. The tool aims to show consumers what meatpackers and supermarkets are doing to prevent illegal products from entering the Amazon. This initiative can also help in the fight against forest clearing since more than 80% of the devastated areas have become pasture.

In law, Imazon published an unprecedented study on the judicial punishment of illegal deforesters in the region, which analyzed the first results of the Amazônia Protege Program, run by the Federal Public Prosecutor’s Office (MPF). This work showed that jurisprudence had been created to accept satellite images as evidence, no longer requiring field inspections. This legal innovation could speed up the accountability of environmental criminals and the reparation of deforested areas.

And speaking of recovering deforested forests, another unpublished study by Imazon showed that at least 5.2 million hectares of secondary vegetation six years and older in the Legal Amazon were in areas with low agricultural suitability. This means they do not compete with grain plantations and are a priority for Assisted Natural Regeneration (ANR) actions, which could help the country meet its internationally agreed forest restoration targets. Imazon researchers produced this and five other studies as part of the Amazon 2030 project, which aims to create a development plan for the region to achieve sustainable use of natural resources by the end of this decade. In 2022, we produced 37 scientific articles, books, reports, technical notes and manuals.

Finally, at the year’s end, the institute supported the expedition that located the most giant tree in Latin America and the fourth largest globally. It is an 88.5-meter-high red angel tree, more than twice the size of Cristo Redentor statue, in Rio de Janeiro. To conserve the place where it is found, the Paru State Forest (Flota), which was among the five most deforested conservation units in the Amazon from October to November, Imazon also launched the Protect the Giant Trees campaign. Before the action, it was possible to find more than 500 Rural Environmental Registrations (CARs) irregularly registered in the territory, which were later canceled.

“the institute also supported the expedition that personally located the largest tree in Latin America and the fourth largest in the world, an 88.5-meter-high red angel tree, which is more than twice the size of  Cristo Redentor statue, in Rio de Janeiro”

These are just a few highlights of Imazon’s work during 2022, always focusing on fulfilling the institute’s mission: “Promoting conservation and sustainable development in the Amazon”! That’s why we invite you to learn more about our work on the following pages and get involved with us in defending the region and the people of the Amazon. Have a good read!

Main contributions


Programs

MONITORING OF THE AMAZON
The general objective of the program is to monitor, analyze address and publicize human pressures on forestry remains of the Amazon, including deforestation, forest degradation, logging and the roads. To achieve this, it combines remote sensing, programming and intelligence artificial agency. Its results have guided planning public policies, taking of decisions in the private sector and assisted in engaging protection of institutions and society in the protection tion of the Amazon.

SUSTAINABLE MUNICIPALITIES
It works to strengthen environmental management and support the low-carbon economy in Amazon municipalities. To this end, it carries out socio-environmental diagnoses, prepares geographic data, promotes training and supports the development and enforcement of public policies. In addition, it develops forest restoration projects, implementation of Agroforestry Systems (SAFs) and support for sustainable income generation in municipalities.

FOREST POLICY AND ECONOMY
Its objective is to evaluate and support public policies policies to promote sustainable use and conservation of forest resources in the Amazon region. To this end, it supports the creation and consolidation of protected areas, with emphasis on the state of Pará. In addition to expand public management training, the program also works to strengthen governance community of territories, an action that includes the formation of voluntary environmental agents.

LAW AND SUSTAINABILITY
Works to create an environment conducive to socio-environmental development in the Amazon by through support for strengthening legislation and its effective application. The main focuses of the program have been increasing the effectiveness of environmental crimes combat and improve laws and federal or state regularization practices land. Its results have served as a basis for evaluating public management, law and the actions of the Judiciary.

CLIMATE CHANGES
It aims to contribute to reducing emissions of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) in the Amazon. For therefore, it develops studies and projects aimed at combating deforestation, development socio-environmental, encouraging reforestation and increase in agricultural productivity but sustainable. The program has offered solutions that can be applied both by the sector public and private for mitigation of climate change.

2022 Results

Monitoring the Amazon

The monthly information collected by Imazon’s Deforestation Alert System (SAD) has been fundamental for non-governmental organizations, civil society groups, and the media to denounce, nationally and internationally, the continuous advance of deforestation in the Amazon region. The results obtained through this monitoring have been an essential tool in the fight against the spread of false information related to the environment in the Amazon, often disseminated through social networks.

Published quarterly, the “Threat and Pressure of Deforestation in Protected Areas” report has also provided crucial information that has been used to denounce the devastating impact on the Amazon region, but with a specific focus on indigenous lands and conservation units.

Continuing its work to monitor logging in the states of the Legal Amazon, the Logging and Monitoring System (Simex), coordinated by Imazon with ICV, Idesam and Imaflora, mapped a total of 377,624 hectares of native forests logged for timber purposes between August 2020 and July 2021. The research also found that in Pará alone, the area of illegal logging within indigenous territories grew 11 times in one year. For the first time, Simex assessed the legality of the logged regions in all the states analyzed: Pará, Amazonas, Mato Grosso, Rondônia, Acre and Roraima. It also published a report with recommendations for developing the sector in the region.


In its second year of operation, the PrevisIA deforestation forecasting platform estimated that the Amazon could lose approximately 11,805 km² of native forest by 2023 if the rate of deforestation is not reduced, equivalent to almost ten cities in Rio de Janeiro. Developed by Imazon in partnership with Microsoft and the Vale Fund, the tool has already shown an assertiveness of nearly 80% in the forecast for 2022, which consolidates it as a relevant technology to help with forest protection actions.

Within the MapBiomas network, Imazon continued coordinating the analysis of land use and cover in the Amazon biome and the MapBiomas Água platform for the whole country. The first study’s results showed that the country lost 13.1% of its native vegetation between 1985 and 2021, and the Amazon biome lost 11.5%. In the case of surface water, the data pointed to a continuing trend of drought in the country and the region.

In partnership with 15 other organizations, Imazon also improved the Proteja Portal, the most extensive virtual library dedicated to protected areas in Brazil, which acts as a source of essential information for research, projects and campaigns related to these territories. The Proteja Brasil Podcast is in its third season to discuss the importance of protecting aquatic environments in the Amazon region, addressing the impact of highways, hydroelectric dams and mining in these areas. In addition, after two years of virtual events, the 2022 edition of Proteja Talks featured a face-to-face meeting in Manaus, Amazonas. With the theme “Territory and Resistance,” the activity brought together various leaders and organizations to discuss the importance of traditional communities in protecting the environment and preserving Brazilian culture.

Sustainable municipalities

In keeping with the challenge of recovering deforested areas in the Pará Amazon, the Floresta para Sempre project reached the milestone of 5,600 seedlings planted on small rural properties, reaching 36 families who worked in family farming and needed to regularize their plots following the Forest Code. In addition, the project continued to train them in the best techniques for recovering native forests through the Formar Forest Restoration course.

In November 2022, Imazon also began implementing an agroforest at the Areia Branca Municipal School in the rural community of Areia Branca, in Ulianópolis, Pará. The action is part of the Gesto Institute’s Forest Room Project, which seeks to transform the Agroforestry System (SAF) into a classroom so that children and teenagers can learn subjects from various disciplines in contact with Amazonian nature, build environmental awareness and also enjoy the organic food grown on-site.


In the area of research, the institute also launched the study “Opportunities for large-scale forest restoration in the Amazon biome: prioritizing secondary vegetation” as part of the Amazonia 2030 project, which revealed that 5.2 million hectares of areas that have been regenerating for more than six years in the Amazon have low suitability for agriculture. In other words, these areas can help to recover forest liabilities at a lower cost and without competing with grain production, thus helping Brazil to achieve its internationally agreed forest restoration targets.

Imazon also continued its contribution to the project “Assisted Natural Regeneration (ANR) on a large scale in the Brazilian Amazon,” carried out in partnership with WRI, ICV, and Suzano. The initiative aims to encourage the restoration of approximately 300,000 hectares through ANR in 8 municipalities, three in Pará and five in Mato Grosso.

Forestry policy and economy

The program was a partner in releasing more than 3,000 chelonians in the Jará Environmental Protection Area (APA) in Juruti with the Laguinho community. The initiative, carried out voluntarily by residents since 2013, reached the highest number of chicks returned to the wild. Also at the APA, Imazon trained the local council members on the legal mechanisms for protecting and conserving biodiversity to strengthen the organization’s work.

The program partnered with another edition of the national campaign Um Dia no Parque (A Day in the Park) to bring people closer to the Conservation Units. Held since 2018 by the Pro-Conservation Units Coalition (Unidos Cuidamos), the initiative promotes events and activities in conservation areas every year, uniting people with nature and educating them about the importance of preserving these places. In 2022, 360 UCs were mobilized, leading just over 100,000 people to join the action.

Imazon also trained 33 volunteers in socio-environmental defense in the Amazon, joining the 86 already working in their territories through the Community Environmental Agents Program (PAAC). Those who took part in the initiative had to complete a course on legislation, conservation areas, environmental education, conflict resolution, GPS and drones for monitoring, firefighting, jungle survival and first aid. With these lessons, they could create projects to improve their communities.


In addition, with other institutions, the institute supported the expedition that located the most giant tree in Latin America and the fourth largest in the world, an 88.5-meter-high red angel tree, more than twice the size of Christ the Redeemer. And to conserve the place where it is found, the Paru State Forest (Flota), which from October to November was among the five most deforested conservation units in the Amazon, Imazon also launched the Protect the Giant Trees campaign. Before the action, it was possible to find more than 500 Rural Environmental Registrations (CARs) irregularly registered in the territory, which were later canceled.

Law and sustainability

Imazon pioneered analyzing the results of the Federal Public Prosecutor’s Office (MPF) Amazônia Protege program, which seeks to hold illegal deforesters in the region accountable through public civil actions. The work showed that of 3,551 lawsuits filed by the MPF by October 2020, only 8% had been sentenced in the first instance, representing just 51 cases. Despite this, the good news was that the judiciary had formed a jurisprudence to accept satellite images as evidence in lawsuits without needing field surveys, which could speed up future punishments. This and other data formed the study “Is the Judiciary Punishing Illegal deforesters in the Amazon – Results of the Amazônia Protege program?“.

The research “Proposals for Territorial Planning in the Amazon that Reduces Deforestation,” published by the Amazônia 2030 project, analyzed solutions and steps for preserving 143.6 million hectares of undesignated forests in the region, which are vulnerable to land grabbing. According to the study, the enforcement of land laws relating to the allocation of land that already exists in the country, together with implementing a land-use planning policy in the region, could help combat deforestation and protect the forest.

In the study “Land Regularization in Federal Areas in the Legal Amazon – Lessons, Challenges and Recommendations,” also published as part of the Amazonia 2030 project, Imazon pointed out that current legislation already allows some occupations of federal land that took place up until December 2011 to be titled without a bidding process. With this, it would be possible to give titles to 88% of the properties currently being applied for by INCRA without changing the laws.

In addition, the program also published a Technical Note on the reduction of land prices in land regularization in state areas in Pará, which showed that the measure would allow for a discount of R$6.7 billion in the privatization of state lands. In practice, it would further benefit those who committed the crimes of invasion and deforestation of public forests – who could already obtain possession of the areas at a price well below the market.

Climate change

In partnership with the O Mundo Que Queremos Institute, Imazon has launched Radar Verde, a transparency indicator for the beef chain in the Amazon. The initiative aims to show consumers what meatpackers and supermarkets are doing to prevent the entry of products related to illegal deforestation. This control is essential for combating the advance of forest destruction in the region since around 80% of the area cut down in the Amazon has already become pasture. The initiative was one of the highlights of COP 27, which took place in Egypt.

Also, in 2022, the first results of the Green Radar were released, which revealed a lack of participation from companies and the refusal of those who responded to the survey to make their performance public. Among the meatpackers invited, 94.5% did not participate in the survey. Another 5.5% responded but needed to authorize the publication of their results. The same happened in the retail segment: 96% of the supermarkets invited have yet to respond. The 4% who agreed to participate did not authorize the publication of their results.

As part of the Amazonia 2030 project, the program published the study “Five Amazons: bases for the sustainable development of the Legal Amazon,” which sees the need to recognize the different realities of the region before implementing any plan. They were divided into Forest Amazonia, Amazonia under pressure, deforested Amazonia, non-forest Amazonia, and urban Amazonia.

The research “The Amazon Paradox,” also published within Amazonia 2030, reveals that the disastrous process of occupation in the region also offers the keys to building a sustainable future. According to the authors, the region’s paradox comprises three key elements: firstly, a vast area of tropical forest is still standing. Secondly, the region has a demographic bonus. Thirdly, there is deforestation, which, in addition to all the socio-environmental damage caused, has left behind a vast, poorly used area.

Finally, the report “Amazon Facts: Environment and Land Use” summarizes the primary information on the region’s natural resources based on secondary data from various public institutions, research institutions, and civil society. This research was also carried out as part of Amazônia 2030.

Communication

By maintaining the new press relations strategies implemented in 2021, Imazon maintained the mark of at least 4,100 press mentions in the year in media outlets in 84 countries. The sector also continued to improve the depth and presentation of content on the organization’s website. As a result, in 2022, the page received 372,000 users (27% more than the previous year) and had 686,000 views (17% more than in 2021).

On social media, also due to the new strategies implemented in 2021, the institute went from 70,000 to 75,000 followers, an increase of 7%. This balance was achieved on six different platforms: Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube, and TikTok.

In 2022, we also highlight the participation of Imazon researchers in three documentaries. The first is “Pelas Estradas do Brasil,” in which journalist Fernando Gabeira travels for 21 days through Amazon to investigate the problems and solutions for the region. The second is “Amazônia na Encruzilhada,” in which journalist Miriam Leitão travels to the area to show the socio-environmental damage caused by the increase in deforestation, which has threatened the lives of traditional peoples and communities. The film won an award at the Alter do Chão International Film Festival. The third is “The Sound of the River,” in which activist Val Munduruku and singer Maria Gadú portray the Amazon on a journey of knowledge and discovery along the Tapajós River.


Administration

Imazon’s administrative area dedicated resources to training professionals and improving the institute’s organizational procedures, which increased the quality of deliveries and the team’s productivity. This was essential to support Imazon’s research activities, field projects and communication.

The sector is also responsible for maintaining and updating the institutional transparency page on the institute’s website, a service created to strengthen the entity’s credibility and accessibility to information. As a result of this commitment, the organization’s accounts and contracts were approved in yet another year without objection during external and independent audits.
