Agroicone was created in 2013 with the objective of developing studies and solutions to promote the sustainability of Brazilian agriculture in partnership with organizations from the public and private sectors and from civil society. The organization is led by experts from the fields of agronomy, international law and applied economics, and brings together a multidisciplinary team that gathers knowledge in bioenergy, geoprocessing, public policies, international trade and other areas relevant to agribusiness.
Based on scientific knowledge, it has carried out projects that contributed to important transformations in the last decade, such as the Brazilian inputs to the Paris Agreement, the construction of RenovaBio's policy and the revision of investments in sustainability in the Crop Year Plan (Plano Safra).
Agroicone operates in five strategic areas:
1) International trade and global issues
In order to contribute to the Brazilian participation in multilateral trade organizations, Agroicone has partaken in several instances of negotiations such as the World Trade Organization - WTO, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change - UNFCCC, and the Convention on Biological Diversity - CBD. Agroicone’s work has been decisive on issues such as trade barriers at the WTO and its committees; analysis of technical, sanitary and phytosanitary measures; projections for global supply and demand of food, energy and other agricultural products, among other issues.
2) Sustainability and territorial intelligence
Agroicone was a pioneer in the creation of the Brazilian Land Use Model - BLUM for agriculture and farming, which has been improved to incorporate Brazilian specificities in order to contribute with regional solutions case by case. It also works with geoprocessing tools, such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS). In this sense, Agroicone's focus has been on building knowledge to contribute to sustainable agricultural practices in all production systems, with the knowledge to support the productive sector in the demands for environmental adequacy in face of Brazilian legislation and the certifications required in the national and international market.
3) Public Policies
Agroicone has produced studies for state and federal agencies in order to implement and improve public policies such as the ABC Plan, the annual reviews of the Crop year Plan, the RenovaBio policy and the implementation of the Forest Code. Through technical analysis, it subsidizes government regulations and evaluates the impacts of these policies in order to guide private organizations and civil society. Agroicone has experience in multisectoral articulation between organizations, in measuring the impacts of policies and in supporting the implementation of state programs, and supports the state departments in their objectives of productivity and environmental adequacy.
4) Business, markets and financing
Agroicone has solutions for the productive sector with analysis and projection of prices, supply and demand for various agricultural products, considering those in the domestic market and those for export. It also offers support in the qualification and certification for green financing, both nationally and internationally.
5) Technologies in agribusiness chains
Agroicone believes in science, technology and innovation so that Brazil realizes its agricultural potential in harmony with the conservation and recovery of natural reserves, assuming a leading role in the world with a vigorous agriculture that contributes to food security and the climate agenda. Adequate investments in new technologies and good agricultural practices for all production systems, which are also accessible to small and medium-sized farmers and producers and which include technical assistance, will be essential to advance this path. In this sense, Agroicone has experience in technological roadmaps, technology transfer, impact assessment and other actions.
