Brazilian Sustainable Livestock Table participates in Land & Carbon Lab’s – 2023 Summitb


The Brazilian Roundtable on Sustainable Livestock (MBPS) attended the Land & Carbon Lab’s 2023 Summit in Brussels, Belgium. Luiza Bruscato, the Executive Director of MBPS, took part in the panel "Breaking Barriers in Grassland Monitoring: Fostering Collaborative Solutions and Interactive Dialogue Across Sectors," which was held on June 28. The panel focused on the role of grasslands in global climate goals and the state of monitoring these areas.


“It was enriching to exchange knowledge and experiences with various specialists and researchers dedicated to collecting and analyzing data from around the world to aid in the monitoring and improvement of grasslands,” Bruscato commented on her participation in the discussion. “I invite everyone to think about how scientific information can impact rural workers and how to help them in the transformation process that will occur in the coming years to halt climate change,” Bruscato concluded, announcing the launch of the Global Grasslands Observatory by LAPIG, a Brazilian organization, during the event.


Breno Félix, CPO and co-founder of AgroTools, an MBPS associate, also participated in the same panel, along with Laerte Ferreira, a professor at LAPIG; Judith Francesca Mangani Kamoto, an associate professor at Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (LUANAR); Leandro Leal Parente, a researcher at the OpenGeoHub Foundation; and Caroline Lehmann, head of tropical diversity at the Botanic Garden of Edinburgh.


Over the three days of the event, more than 500 participants gathered to share knowledge and discuss the theme with the aim of advancing the development and implementation of geospatial monitoring across eight macro themes:


1. Accelerating local landscape restoration implementation;

2. Combating deforestation and environmental crimes;

3. Strengthening community-led land management;

4. Ensuring accountability for deforestation-free supply chains;

5. Enhancing policy and finance mechanisms for nature-based solutions;

6. Planning land use for more sustainable food systems;

7. Tracking progress of global commitments;

8. Creating more equitable, sustainable, and resilient urban areas.


MBPS’s participation was by invitation from the WRI (World Resources Institute) and LAPIG (Laboratory for Image Processing and Geoprocessing).


The Summit, held from June 27 to 29, is the leading global conference for policymakers, practitioners, and innovators aiming to leverage the power of geospatial data to meet the climate, nature, and sustainable development goals set for this decade.
