Describes Brazil’s livestock NAMA: the Resource Efficiency Program for Brazil’s Beef Supply Chain. The NAMA proposes to leverage the experience and structure of existing Brazilian initiatives to encourage good practices throughout the beef supply chain to implement an integrated program at scale. The program combines three key elements:

(i) awareness of the benefits of good practices in sub-sectors and the program’s offered assistance package;
(ii) a technical assistance package for individuals in the production chain, including: diagnosis of available opportunities, implementation assistance, accreditation of technology and assistance providers to reduce risks of lending, and assistance and training for financial institutions; and
(iii) a financing package to enable investments in best practices.
