                         national and global socioeconomic and environmental crises, since 
                         they provide new development opportunities, for example, as source 
                         of job and income creation, and reduction in poverty and 
                         socioeconomic inequity. Brazilian biological diversity is also 
                         expressed in its immense cultural diversity, with a great variety 
                         of knowledge holders. These peoples possess vast knowledge on 
                         agrobiodiversity, fishing, fire management, natural medicine, 
                         among others of commercial, cultural and spiritual value. The main 
                         conclusions of this Summary for Police Makers is that land use 
                         changes and climate changes have been - and will continue to be 
                         throughout this century - the main drivers that result in the loss 
                         of biodiversity and ecosystem services in the country. Political 
                         interventions at different levels (from local to national, from 
                         public to private) and the enforcement of existing laws 
                         (regulatory mechanisms and incentives) are required to cope with 
                         the mitigation of the negative impacts of biodiversity and 
                         ecosystem services loss. Brazil has already a wide variety of 
                         policy instruments and socioenvironmental governance options, as 
                         well as global commitments (ODS, Aich Targets, Paris Agreement) 
                         related to the objective of a sustainable future. However, 
                         inefficient management control or lack of incentive to comply with 
                         the rules pose risks to consolidating the path to this future. The 
                         country has strong and capable institutions, but infrastructural 
                         problems, slow processes, inefficient measurements and judicial, 
                         social and ecological conflicts obstruct a proficient performance. 
                         There is a lack of communication between science and society which 
                         needs to be improved by establishing an effective flow that makes 
                         communication inclusive and representative, reaching public and 
                         private decision makers. Permanent efforts to integrate Science 
                         and policy knowledges are desirable to build confidence between 
                         policy makers and researchers.",
