Growing sustainably, in the path to decarbonization, is one of the goals of ARP, and to achieve this, it is necessary to emit as little as possible ensuring an increase of absorption capacity. Currently, ARP is a carbon sink, allowing it to provide a service to the global community. However, future projections indicate that this status may be lost if development policies are not taken towards decarbonization.
This development scenario considers the evolution of ARP with the implementation of policies and initiatives previously defined by the Government and without the impact of the adoption of complementary mitigation measures. The modulation of emissions was carried out based on assumptions of what is reasonable to happen, until 2050, in the region.
In this scenario, ARP ceases to be a carbon sink between 2040 and 2045, starting to emit more than what it removes.
This development scenario considers the evolution of ARP encompassing the proposed sectoral mitigation measures for the mitigation of GHG emissions.
In the João Dias Pai scenario, the balance between emissions and removals remains negative, presenting, in 2050, the removal of approximately 9 ktCO2eq, which allows it to remain a carbon sink.
