Forest Carbon Ratings – South Brazil

£500£800 excl. TAX

The Forest Carbon Ratings provide information relevant to the forest and carbon dynamics within a region, down to a second administrative level scale. The product is sold as a bundle of a report in PDF format and the ratings and data insights in CSV format (with provision of an additional shapefile containing insights for the extended licence only).
The product is designed for use by public and private industry for forest governance, evaluation for use of forests as stores of carbon for net zero commitments, REDD+, carbon related finance and general forest governance.

The region of South Brazil accounts for 7% of the country’s total land mass, and accounts for 4% of national forest cover. The region is drawn along official state boundaries, and includes the states of Paraná, Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina. South Brazil predominantly comprises the Mata Atlântica biome, known for its tropical forests, extensive biodiversity and considerable fragmentation due to agricultural expansion. Additionally, the state of Rio Grande do Sul is contains the Pampa biome, which is flat fertile grasslands dominated by agriculture and there are small pockets of the Cerrado biome, known for its savannahs and grasslands, as well as being a hotspot for deforestation, caused by the expansion of cattle ranching and soy farming.

Getting the best data

The Forest Carbon Ratings provide information relevant to the forest and carbon dynamics within a region, down to a second administrative level scale. The product is sold as a bundle of a report in PDF format and the ratings and data insights in CSV format (with provision of an additional shapefile containing insights for the extended licence only). The product is designed for use by public and private industry for forest governance, evaluation for use of forests as stores of carbon for net zero commitments, REDD+, carbon related finance and general forest governance.

Five different ratings give an insight into the forest and carbon dynamics on a second administrative level scale:

  • Long-Term Forest Loss: Denotes the long-term (20 year) historical trend of forest change as a proportion of the baseline forest observed within the area of interest.
  • Short-Term Forest Loss: Denotes the forest change within the past year as a proportion of the baseline forest observed within the area of interest.
  • Forest at Risk: Denotes the relative risk of forest assets within the area of interest being lost to deforestation.
  • Forest Carbon at Risk: Denotes the relative risk to carbon stored in forests that are at high or very high risk of loss due to deforestation.
  • Carbon Sequestration Potential: Denotes the potential for carbon to be sequestered through restoration or reforestation efforts on suitable land.
Additional data insights are provided in the CSV:

  • Forested Area in 2000 (Ha)
  • Total Forest Loss 2000 – 2020 (Ha)
  • Forested Area in 2019 (Ha)
  • 2020 Forest Loss (Ha)
  • Proportional Deforestation Risk Score
  • Total Forest Carbon at Risk (tC)
  • Density of Forest Carbon at Risk (tC/Ha)
  • Forest Carbon Density (tC/Ha)
  • Total Forest Carbon (Ha)
  • Carbon Sequestration Potential (tC)

For external licence purchases, a shapefile of second level administrative boundaries will contain the above information in the attribute fields.
