Despite their importance, these externalities are poorly known.

    Exploration and mapping of alternative land uses suggest ways to foster territorial development pathways that can coexist with a forest cover. As the Pampas and Chaco are becoming one of the most relevant global grain suppliers of South America, the fast expansion of crops over pastures (Pampas) and dry forests (Chaco), ongoing climate changes, and extremely flat topography, make these regions vulnerable to rapid and non-linear hydrological shifts, including long-lasting floods and salinization processes.

    Rising oil prices has led to increased interest to replace domestic demand for liquid fuels for transport (petrol and diesel) with biofuel production (ethanol and biodiesel). One of the pioneers in biofuel production is Brazil, which since the 1970s has established a government program that promotes the production and consumption of ethanol. Currently, Brazil is the leading producer of ethanol in the world and has started also programs for biodiesel production based on soybeans, oil palm and other crops.

    Todo estudio de caracterización de causas y agentes de deforestación debe basarse en un marco conceptual sólido que tenga en cuenta los elementos más importantes para comprender y analizar el fenómeno, al tiempo que se adapte a las características del territorio estudiado. Contar con una base nacional de información de causas y agentes de deforestación, implica que los estudios se sustenten en una base conceptual común, que permita la estandarización y uso de la información recopilada a nivel local, regional o nacional, en el diseño de medidas y acciones de mitigación.
