Project Details

Description

A collaboration between the Department of Work, Employment and Organisation and the Amazonian Institute of Family farming, Federal University of Para. In the Tapajós Basin, the traditional riverine community of Montanha and Mangabal have faced what is considered to be the most sophisticated act of land grabbing in the entire Amazon, carried out by the southern company Indussolo, which fraudulently appropriated 1,380,000 hectares3. Despite having its territory recognized as an Agroextractive Settlement the longstanding community is subject to land grabbing, illegal logging and mining.

Our research seeks to support community-based and judicial processes that defend their territorial rights towards the mutual protection of forest and livelihoods at a critical juncture in Amazonia policy
