Graduating Country

Workshop on Family Farming, January

The Brazilian state of Mato Grosso, which has benefitted economically from the growth of its large agricultural sector, is now working towards increasing the added value of its agricultural commodities while reducing the environmental and social challenges associated with this growth, such as poor working conditions and uneven income distribution. To tackle these challenges, Mato Grosso is promoting new economic activities, technologies, and efforts to rehabilitate its natural resource base. Brazil joined PAGE in 2016 and is now a Graduating Country.

These activities contribute to the achievement of SDGs 2 (Zero Hunger), 4 (Quality Education), 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy), 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure), 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production) and 17 (Partnership for the Goals).
