IEB, CEPF and CI / GEF mission visits Cerrado conservation projects in Mato Grosso do Sul

In this month of April, the International Institute of Education of Brazil / CEPF Cerrado received a visit from the CEPF International and Conservation International / GEF for a visit to projects that are already running in the areas of Cerrado of Mato Grosso do Sul.

The projects were approved by CEPF Cerrado First Call 2016 and are executed by Hanaiti Yomo'omo Association (AHY), ECOA, Neotropic Foundation of Brazil and WWF-Brazil and are developing work aimed at restoration, training, territorial management, public policy, protected areas and agroecology.

THE AHY and the ECOA They work with the strengthening of communities, the first seeking the inclusion of indigenous people and the second with rural settlers, by adding value and generating income through the Cerrado's agricultural and agro-extractive products. In addition, ECOA is following a vegetation restoration process started in 2016 in 15 areas (totaling approximately 22 ha). THE Neotropic Foundation of Brazil and WWF-Brazil seek to strengthen CONDEMAs to support local decisions that contribute to the conservation of the Cerrado and to the achievement of global biodiversity conservation goals. In addition, WWF-Brazil aims to promote participatory municipal land use planning and develop community-based programs for ecological restoration.
