In statement released on Wednesday (29/04), the Environmental Institute of Paraná (IAP), responsible for approval, reveals that 17% of the 532 thousand existing farms in the state are properly regulated by the Rural Environmental Registry (CAR).
That is, only 92 thousand Paraná farms are registered.
Despite the number, the IAP remembers, according to the press material, that Paraná is the third state in the country with the largest number of rural properties registered in the CAR, behind Santa Catarina and Minas Gerais.
The Registry was established by the Forest Code (Lei nº 12.651/2012) and is a tool for environmental regularization of rural properties in the country. According to the law, the deadline for registration ends on May 5.
Anticipating that the deadline for registration would not be enough, the government of Parana, according to the advice, sent in March a letter requesting to the Ministry of Environment to extend the deadline for registration in accordance with what is provided in the New Forest Code.
