Task Force Brazil

A Working Group adapted to Brazilian Reality

At the beginning of 2013, we created Task Force Brazil, formed by Brazilian members that aimed at developing, implementing and structuring RTRS activities in Brazil and, in the long term, driving outspread adoption of RTRS soy in Brazil. The function of this Task Force within this vision is to propose and adopt an outreach strategy, together with annual plans involving domestic and foreign stakeholders.

The aim of creating this Task Force in Brazil is to define priorities, focus on energies and resources, strengthen operations, assure that stakeholders work together with common goals, and reach consensus on the expected output and, consequently, intensifying RTRS soy production in Brazil.
