Development of Ecosystem Planning Tools for Upstream Biofuels in Brazil

May 7, 2010

Working for a leading biofuels producer to assist in the development of effective processes and tools for monitoring land use change in areas under their stewardship and influence. This project involved the identification and mapping of ecosystems in and around current and potential biofuel production areas, defining historic land-use and ecosystem change prior to biofuel feedstock production, streamlining processes for identifying areas of ecosystem conservation, restoration and management within and around production areas, and monitoring of changes to productive and natural ecosystems since production started. The first phase of this work was conducted in the Goias state, Brazil.
