Jabenzi making economic development work for the people of Africa.

The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB) study is a major international initiative to draw attention to the global economic benefits of biodiversity, to highlight the growing costs of biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation, and to draw together expertise from the fields of science, economics and policy to enable practical actions moving forward.

Due to the past degradation and considerable fragmentation of the remaining Atlantic Forest, it is no longer possible to preserve the forest's natural cycles, genetic flux and environmental services without addressing high priority policies, programs and projects on a large scale to the restoration of this biome.

That is why the Atlantic Forest Restoration Pact was set up, with the mission of orchestrating public and private institutions, governments, companies and landowners to integrate their efforts and resources towards the preservation of the biological diversity, the generation of employment and income within the restoration production chain, the sustaining and appraisal of and payment of environmental services and the alignment of agricultural activities with the legal requirements in the 17 states covered by this biome.

The aim of the Atlantic Forest Restoration Pact is to restore 15 million hectares of the forest by the year 2050, spread across annual plans approved by its Steering Committee.
