The Protection of the Amazonical Environment Command - PAECEdit
Supported by China, Russia, United States, and by a big part of the European Union, Brazil created The Protection of the Amazonical Environment Command (PAEC), on September 7th, 2013.
Since 2009 Brazil was being intensely pressured by the international community to give more attention to the Amazon Forest. Considered a biome vital to the planet, the Amazon was suffering because of the brazilian government neglect, that apparently wasn't aware of the damage caused by griefers and timber-extraction companies -- legal or illegal companies -- to the forest.
When questioned about the lack of control upon the illegal extractivist activities in the Amazon, the brazilian Ministry of Environment declared: "We don't have financial resources or internal political support to restructure the protection coverage in the Amazon. There's a lack of political will in our government, army and environmental organizations. If we had more support from other countries, both in the transfer of financial resources as in the transfer of technology, we could retain more control over what happens in the Amazon."
In January 2011, Brazil and India signed the agreement that made possible the development of technology needed to make the protection to the Amazon more effective.
It was then formed a pool of open-source scientists , in order to develop the technology needed to make surveillance on the Amazon more transparent and robust.
Several countries have sponsored the pool, such as the Netherlands, Sweden, Great Britain, United States, Denmark, Finland, among others.
Brazil benefited from the development of biofuel crops. Back in 2006, the national government released a PR programme focused on putting the word out about the biofuel. Historically, Brazil is known to rely on economic cycles: Timber, Sugar Cane, Slavery, Gold, Diamonds, Coffee, etc., each one being a single cycle.
Biofuel has been considered the new brazilian cycle. In January, 2007 the brazilian government launched a national growth-acceleration economic plan: PAC. That plan was responsible for giving a new infrastructure to Brazil: roads, railroads, harbors, energy processing, etc. At the early years of the plan, renewable energies weren't massively covered by the plan. Only R$17.4 billions (R$1.00 = US$0.50, by the time of the writing) were destinated to that kind of energy.
