Green Grain Protocol debate on video
The green grain protocol creates guarantees for companies, producers, the Public Prosecutor’s Office and others to prevent illegal deforestation in soybean farms in Pará state. With the knowledge that the protocol will not solve the deforestation issue alone, the first edition of Soy Wednesday brought to the table a discussion on the challenges and opportunities of the protocol and its connection with other soybean-related solutions. James Allen, Olab's executive director, hosted the debate between Fabiana Reguero, social and environmental manager at Amaggi, public prosecutor Daniel Azeredo, Giovana Baggio, sustainable agriculture manager of The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and Lisandro Inakake de Souza, project coordinator of the Climate and Agricultural Chains Initiative at Imaflora and also coordinator of the Soy on Track Program.
