How we work in brazilian amazon:


‘Support to Sustainable Development’ Programme

  • FForest management (timber and non-timber products)

    • SStep-wise-approach for companies;

    • SSupport forest management for communities.

  • SSustainable fishery model;

  • SSupport public policy to modernization of forest system;

  • EEnvironmental education;

  • SSupporting governance and organization development.


Governance in Sustainable Fishery a model for forests?

  • Thinking out of the box:

  • 9 fishing agreements covering:

    - 203 riverines communities

    - 51,000 people

    - 1.1 million ha. under co-management

  • Fishing agreements – 60% more productive than non-managed lakes

  • Networking of pirarucu management initiatives (basin wide)

  • Biological and socio economic surveys for sustainable use protected area designation
