Ibama will have a public platform with data from degraded areas across Brazil


Ibama will have a new platform for monitoring degraded areas subject to environmental recovery. In a normative instruction published today (2) in the Official Gazette of the Union, the municipality detailed the operation of the Environmental Recovery Monitoring Platform (Recooperar), which will gather data from forest fire zones, embargoed due to deforestation or occupation of protected areas, planting compensation for federal environmental licensing and reparation for environmental damage, among others of this type. The rule comes into force on April 15th.

Recooperar will contain data from public databases, with geographic information about the monitored area – such as biome, hydrographic region, data from the Rural Environmental Registry (CAR) – and whether it is located on indigenous land, quilombola land or conservation unit. Administrative information will also be included, such as the infraction notice number, embargo term and licenses. According to Raquel Lacerda, Environmental Recovery coordinator at Ibama, the new platform is expected to be made available to users “by the end of May”.

According to the normative instruction, the information will be made available on a specific page about environmental recovery within Ibama’s Geospatial Analysis and Monitoring Platform for Environmental Information (Pamgia). As is already the case with Pamgia, the information will be for public use, but to access it you will need to register on the platform to guarantee the “security and integrity of the stored data”, according to the text. According to Agência Brasil, Recooperar will rely on data from other Ibama platforms, such as the Ibama Simplified Vector Registry (CASV).
