Brazilian code seen as aiding environmental protection
For Abreu, these two instruments created by the Brazilian environmental legislation "ended the industry of fines and punitive legislation, replacing them with an educational law that has environmental gains." From now on, the farmer who received fines before July 22, 2008 may enroll in the PRA, pledging to recover the environmental damage for which he received the penalty. The president of CNA said "this is not amnesty because the penalty is removed only after verification that the recovery was made for the area."
The new Forest Code allows the continuation of agricultural activities in areas already in production before July 22, 2008, provided that the producer recovers vegetation along the river or watercourse, according to the size of the property and the width of the river. Another innovation is the creation of the Environmental Reserve Quota (CRA), an instrument of financial benefit to the producer who has an area of native vegetation greater than that required by law. To stimulate preservation, a program of financial incentives for the recovery of deforested areas is also expected to be created.
