On April 20, 2021, the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, and Supply (MAPA) announced the Sectoral Plan for Climate Change Adaptation and Low Carbon Emission in Agriculture Seeking Sustainable Development (2020-2030), called ABC+. The plan builds on a previous edition (ABC 2010-2020) and seeks to consolidate Brazilian agriculture on the basis of sustainable, resilient, and productive systems. MAPA sees the ABC+ Plan as an instrument that promotes sustainable agriculture through strategies of adaptation and mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions. A forthcoming document that will set the actions and quantitative goals for the Plan will be released in the third quarter of 2021.
