Current Nature-based Action in Adaptation Plan

In this last year, Paraguay has demonstrated its commitments in the climatic and environmental aspects since it has presented a National Plan of Forestation and Reforestation, where through a presidential decree the Deputy Minister of Mines and Energy is authorized to establish certification and funding schemes to the National Development Bank of US $ 40,000,000 for the start of forest plantations for energy and timber purposes, which will directly affect less pressure on native forests for the use of biomass.
