Portuguese term or phrase: do modo como usamos a terra e as florestas
This is a list of priorities for funding under Global Environment Facility Round 5. I thought that "dela, which wouldn't make much sense. And "floresta"doesn't fit with the phrase that follows. Any ideas on what they're trying to say? (By the way, REDD is a program devoted to Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation.)

• Mudanças climáticas
o Conservação e expansão dos sumidouros de carbono através de programas LULUCF,

o Energias renováveis, onde se priorizam projectos de invetimentos e de tecnologias para energias renováveis, seguidos de projectos para o melhoramento do quadro político e regulador;

Os participantes justificaram esta opção nos seguintes termos: o país é rico em recursos florestais e há necessidade de tiramos benefício dela através **do modo como usamos a terra e as florestas**, tendo em conta que estamos em processo de beneficiarmos do REDD.

Compare:

While climate change mitigation has focused largely on reducing emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, our use of land and forests for agriculture, cities, timber production, and other activities also plays a critical role in climate change. Because trees and other plants absorb carbon dioxide, sequester carbon, and release that
carbon into the atmosphere when they die, the way we use and manage land greatly affects the climate outcome.
