The project aims to improve forest conservation by tapping the potential of the limited and under-explored spaces for dialogue, negotiation, coordination and innovation.
Work will focus on capacity building and encouraging changes in policies on land and resource use.
The work is based in 3 micro-regions in the East and South Brazilian Amazon (280,000 km2 with a rural population of approximately 300,000). It will also intervene at other levels (local, state and federal).
Target groups include private sector organizations (small and/or medium and larger operators), public sector organizations (at several levels) and organizations within civil society.
Main project activities include:
- Capacity building by facilitating the sharing of information and knowledge, and through training.
- Consolidating dialogue and negotiation processes, by addressing and supporting multi-stakeholder ongoing processes at local, state and federal levels.
- Fostering a joint understanding of the idea of common goods and facilitating changes in the policies and instruments on land and resource use within both private and public sectors, by coordinating actions among local, state and federal actors.
Contribute to the preservation and sustainable management of forest resources and territorial development in the Brazilian Amazon, by tapping the potential of the limited but under-explored spaces for dialogue, negotiation, coordination and innovation.
Jointly conceived public and private strategies, policies and instruments are implemented based on dialogue, at multi-levels, mobilizing already existing financial flows, and incorporating environmental and social dimensions.
