Brazil: The State Secretariat for the Environment and Water Resources (Semar) of Piaui has recently launched the Rural Environmental Registry (CAR) project to integrate environmental information of rural properties. The project aims to create a database which will help in monitoring the environmental and economic planning of rural properties to combat deforestation.

“From now on, Piaui will rely on a database of satellite images that will locate, identify and georeference rural properties. Besides environmental management tool, the Environmental Registry can consolidate itself as the gateway to the largest programme for combating deforestation,” said Macambira Dalton, Secretary of Semar.
