In order to underline the importance of sustainable extraction of sociobiodiversity Cerrado, a traditional practice already widespread in the biome and one of the main alternatives to maintain “Cerrado standing”, WWF-Brazil in partnership with the Society, Population and Nature Institute (ISPN), Central Cooperative of the Cerrado, with support from CEPF Cerrado and International Institute of Education of Brazil, will hold the Cerrado Socio-Biodiversity Products Production and Marketing Workshop.
THE workshop aims to identify and give visibility to the contributions of different approaches to the development of Cerrado productive chains, in order to overcome challenges and articulate with the public authorities, besides starting a process of reflection, knowledge exchange and learning in the aspects related to “Production and Marketing” of agro-extractive products. The workshop will also be a space for organizing discussion forums for integration with the programming of the IX Meeting and Fair of the Cerrado People.
The Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund is a joint initiative of the French Development Agency, Conservation International, the European Union, Global Environmental Management, the Government of Japan and the World Bank.
