Brazil is the largest country in South America and the fifth largest and most populous in the world. Forests cover about three-fifths of Brazil’s land area, which represents over 14% of the world’s forest coverage, including one-third of the world's remaining rainforests.

Despite the fact that the deforestation rate in the Brazilian Amazon has decreased in the last decade, deforestation continues to be a major issue. Currently, six of the Amazon states are a part of the Governor’s Climate and Forests Task Force (GCF). The goal of the GCF is to connect these states and the fourteen others in the partnership with market and non-market finance. Brazil is also in the process of developing a national REDD strategy.
