Deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon and Cerrado is no longer on a downtrend. Are there signals of a new pattern of land use change?

Possible topics include the evolving role of supply chain interventions, perspectives on zero deforestation, the political ecology of deforestation, challenges and solutions to the cattle agreements, land use intensification, the CAR registry, and others.
