by Renata Peña, via WWF-Brasil

They are more than 3.5 million hectares of extreme beauty and diversity of plants, animals and medicinal herbs, as well as quilombola communities and indigenous lands. All this natural and socio-cultural richness is preserved in a set of 31 Protected Areas located in the Cerrado, between the north and northwest of Minas Gerais. THE Sertão Veredas Mosaic & #8211; Peruaçu has just received an action plan to foster sustainable development in this territory by 2030.

Starting next year, the Mosaic advisory council will seek to implement actions related to five main themes: integrated management, ecotourism, plant extraction, water conservation and sustainable agribusiness.

This means for example developing the agroecology with family farmers in the region - establishment of nurseries and backyards & #8211; empower residents of rural communities to strengthen existing plant extraction cooperatives and foster the creation of new ones; support brigade members in the fight against forest fires and further expand the potential of community-based tourism by training guides and drivers and creating new trails. THE Payment for Environmental Services (PSA) and the spring recovery degraded are two other guidelines of the action plan for the Sertão Veredas Peruaçu Mosaic.

“The plan is essential so that the actions we have been developing for several years do not suffer a sudden stop with the change in the national political scenario. It is a motivation to be more innovative and to win more and more projects and initiatives that land in the local reality of the people and Mosaic Conservation Units ”, says WWF-Brazil conservation analyst Vinícius Pereira.

César Vitor do Espírito Santo, executive superintendent of the Pro-Nature Foundation (Funatura) explains that the plan also foresees the creation of a fund for the Mosaic. The funds raised would be used to implement the planned actions: “With this plan, we intend that the Sertão Veredas Peruaçu Mosaic can be an inducer of sustainable development in the territory. A diverse and complex territory economically, socially and culturally. ”

For Joel Sirqueira, manager of the Peruaçu Valley Family and Extractive Farmers Cooperative (Cooperuaçu), an agro-extractive cooperative that has been supported by WWF-Brasil since its inception, the plan is an organized resource to continue conserving the Cerrado. “It directs in a planned and thoughtful way collectively, since everything was built together, the actions aimed at extractivism within the territory and especially for new ventures and cooperatives like Cooperuaçu, it is much more motivating to act when you have a document that helps leading the way forward, ”he says.

Grande Sertão Veredas National Park turns 30 years old

por Renata Andrade Peña via WWF-Brasil

A paisagem é espetacular: chega quando menos se espera. A água é em abundância: são veredas a perder de vista, rodeando cada canto que se olhe. Dela, sobrevivem centenas de espécies ameaçadas de extinção como a onça-pintada, o tamanduá-bandeira e o lobo-guará. Toda essa rica biodiversidade está protegida desde 12 de abril de 1989, quando 84 mil hectares formaram o Parque Nacional Grande Sertão Veredas, em Minas Gerais. Hoje, o Parque faz 30 anos e o Cerrado agradece.

“Foi muito importante essa Unidade de Conservação ter sido criada numa região de expansão da fronteira agrícola, com intensa ocupação do agronegócio. Essa área protegida é muito importante para a biodiversidade do Cerrado e também para os recursos hídricos. Ali nasce o rio Carinhanha. Quando ele desemboca no rio São Francisco, o velho Chico aumenta em 20% o seu volume”, explica Kolbe Soares, analista de Conservação do WWF-Brasil.

Elson Barbosa dos Santos, guia no Parque, destaca a importância dos recursos hídricos e espécies medicinais do Cerrado, que ficam protegidas. “Embaixo da região do parque está o aquífero Urucuia, muito importante para a manutenção dos rios da região como o Carinhana, Itaguari e tanto outros.  Graças ao Parque também estão protegidas diversas espécies medicinais do Sertão”.

Em 2004, o Parque Grande Sertão Veredas foi ampliado e passou a ter mais de 230 mil hectares, estendo-se por parte dos municípios de Chapada Gaúcha, Formoso e Arinos, em Minas Gerais e Côcos, na Bahia. Assim, é atualmente um dos maiores parques do Cerrado, garantindo, além da proteção de centenas de espécies da fauna e flora, o desenvolvimento de pesquisa científica, educação ambiental, o contato com a natureza, o desenvolvimento regional em bases sustentáveis e a preservação dos povos tradicionais, comunidades indígenas, seus saberes e cultura.

A existência dessa área protegida também é uma oportunidade de desenvolvimento sustentável.“Há um enorme potencial de aumento do ecoturismo na região pelas suas belezas, pela possibilidade de se ver o Cerrado preservado e também por conta da cultura dos povos da região e literatura”, diz Kolbe Soares. “Na região, é realizado anualmente, no mês de julho, o Encontro dos Povos do Grande Sertão Veredas. É muito importante conservar essa riqueza cultural e social”, completa Soares.

“É um grande prazer falar dessa UC porque é falar da riqueza da biodiversidade e também de história das comunidades que ainda guardam as tradições culturais do povo do Sertão”, diz César Víctor, da Fundação Pró-Natureza (Funatura).

O Parque recebeu esse nome em homenagem a uma das mais importantes obras literárias brasileiras, o romance “Grande Sertão: Veredas”, escrito em 1956 por João Guimarães Rosa. No livro, o escritor mineiro retrata com extrema sensibilidade a realidade regional. Guimarães Rosa tem mesmo razão: “Sertão é isto: o senhor empurra para trás, mas de repente ele volta a rodear o senhor dos lados. Sertão é quando menos se espera”.

WWF-Brasil e o Parque Nacional Grande Sertão Veredas

O Parque Nacional Grande Sertão Veredas está localizado no norte/noroeste de Minas Gerais e sudoeste Bahia, abrangendo uma área de 231.668 hectares. Desde 2010, o WWF-Brasil desenvolve na região o Projeto Sertões com foco na melhoria da gestão de áreas protegidas, valorização de cadeias produtivas agroextrativistas com boas práticas agrícolas. Mais recentemente apoiaram o Parque e o Mosaico em parceria com o Fundo de Parceria para Ecossistemas Críticos (CEPF em inglês).

Os trabalhos são realizados em parcerias com as cooperativas agroextrativistas e associações comunitárias do Mosaico Sertão Veredas-Peruaçu, além de outras organizações não governamentais socioambientais e órgãos de governo, como as 12 prefeituras da região, além do Instituto Chico Mendes de Conservação da Biodiversidade (ICMBio) e Instituto Estadual de Florestas de Minas Gerais.

No último ano, a construção de uma unidade de beneficiamento de frutos do cerrado e frutos de quintais no Núcleo Peruaçu e a criação da Cooperativa dos Agricultores Familiares e Agroextrativistas do Vale do Peruaçu foram umas das ações mais importantes. Além disso, foi dado apoio para implementação do Cadastro Ambiental Rural na região que resultou no cadastramento de aproximadamente 10 mil propriedades. Outro destaque foi a realização de um estudo de análise da efetividade de 69 Unidades de Conservação estaduais de Minas Gerais.

The fruits of the Cerrado available in São Paulo

By Renata Andrada Peña via WWF-Brasil

From now on, cassava flour, sesame, monkey pepper, indaiá coconut flour and two varieties of pestle rice are now part of the set of products regularly offered in the biomes box, opened in 2016 at the Pinheiros Municipal Market, in Sao Paulo. They combine with baru nuts, saffron, jatoba flour, honey, jabuticaba jelly and pequi, among others. Cerrado delights also available for sale in the state capital.

The news has just been released by Kalunga families (Brazil's largest Quilombola territory, located in Goiás, in the Chapada dos Veadeiros region), The Atá Institute and the Cerrado Central, with the support of WWF-Brazil, the Banco do Brasil Foundation and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). All new products are the result of cultivation and agro-extractivism in the Cerrado and are part of the gastronomic culture of traditional quilombola peoples.

The products are marketed by Cerrado Central, a nonprofit cooperative center established in Brasilia and composed of 35 community organizations from seven Brazilian states (MA, TO, PA, MG, MS, MT and GO) that develop productive activities based on the sustainable use of the biome's biodiversity. The Cerrado has the potential to harness more than 200 different kinds of native plants, according to research from the University of Brasilia (UnB).

Buriti

According to Luis Carraza, coordinator of the Cerrado Central, this partnership with WWF-Brasil was very important and served to strengthen and expand the production and marketing of native Cerrado products. “Through this support, specific work has been done with our affiliated organizations to prioritize some of the Cerrado fruit production chains such as pequi, baru and jatobá, in order to guarantee production stocks that can supply the consumer market. which is increasing considerably each year, ”says Carraza.

In addition to promoting the dissemination and insertion of sustainable use products in local markets, regional and international & #8211; export of pequi to Japan, chestnut from baru to the United States and handicrafts of Golden grass for France & #8211; Cerrado Central is also a center for the dissemination of information, exchange and technical support for communities in improving their production, organizational and management processes.

WWF-Brazil has been supporting the Cerrado Central since 2018 with actions focused on sustainable plant extractivism of the fruits of the biome and in structuring and strengthening the productive chains of native fruits. This project is supported by WWF-France, the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund) and the Humanize Institute.

Project Focus: Buriti - Income Generation for Youth and Women, Conservation of Veredas and Chapadas

Vereda is a type of Cerrado vegetation that is surrounded by typical fields, usually humid, with the presence of palm buriti (Mauritania flexuosa). This type of ecosystem ensures humidity even in dry periods, making it a refuge for fauna and flora.

The project Buriti & #8211; income generation for young people and women, conservation of Veredas and Chapadaswhich is run by Family Farmers and Agro-Extractives Cooperative Grande Sertão Ltda., and has the support of Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF, Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fundand Brazilian International Institute of Education (IEB) It works in the conservation of the Veredas, through the generation of work and income with the traditional peoples and communities of northern Minas Gerais, especially young people and women, who often take the lead in work involving agroextractivism and the processing of products.

Know the history of Zenita farmer and farmer, which owns a property in Brasilia de Minas, northern Minas Gerais. From the age of 10 Zenita has been in contact with the Veredas, buriti and Cerrado, and today, with the knowledge he inherited from his parents, makes the collection of buriti fruits for income generation. The Cooperative Grande Sertão makes use of buriti and other fruits of the Cerrado, which are collected by farmers like Zenita. The cooperative does the logistics process and develops by-products such as oil and flour, among others.

Considered extinct in the state of Minas Gerais, weevils are reintroduced in a protected area in the north of the state.

via Ariramba Institute

The weevil (Sporophila maximiliani) is one of the most birds rare and endangered and currently free-living populations in the country are unknown. The last record in the wild occurred at the end of 2014, where a small population was located in the interior of the state of Mato Grosso, which has not been seen since. In the rest of the country, the boll weevil has been extinct in practically its entire area of occurrence. In order to reverse this situation, in November 2018, some pairs of bollards were reintroduced in northern Minas Gerais, in a protected area priority corridor Sertão Veredas-Peruaçu. Prior to reintroduction, the boll weevils underwent screening and adaptation procedures, including the selection of pure specimens, sanitary examination battery, adaptation for long-haul flights and adaptation to local weather conditions.

The reintroduced weevils are adapting very well to the natural environment and we are optimistic about the future possibilities”Explains Prof. Dr. Flávio Kulaif Ubaid, project coordinator.

The boll weevils are being monitored by project biologists and the next steps include the reintroduction of more couples. “We want the weevil to re-inhabit the paths of northern Minas Gerais and why not at all Cerrado. In the medium term, our goal is for the free-living weevil population to be substantially increased until the species moves into less critical threat categories.”Reports Dr. Ubaid.

The project supported by CEPF and the International Institute of Education of Brazil -Reintroduction of bicudo in key areas for the conservation of the Cerrado & #8211; is managed by Ariramba Institute of Nature Conservation It also has the support of several professionals from different institutions and universities in Brazil.

The Mosaico Sertão Veredas–Peruaçu (MSVP) é um conjunto de áreas protegidas localizadas na margem esquerda do Rio São Francisco, entre as regiões norte e noroeste de Minas Gerais e parte do sudoeste da Bahia. Com uma área aproximada de 1.8 milhões de hectares e perímetro de 1.210 km, o Mosaico envolve unidades de conservação ambiental, comunidades tradicionais e a Terra Indígena Xakriabá. Em Minas Gerais, o Mosaico engloba áreas dos municípios de Formoso, Arinos, Chapada Gaúcha, Urucuia, Cônego Marinho, Januária, Itacarambi, Bonito de Minas, São João das Missões, Miravânia e Manga. Atravessado pelo Rio Carinhanha, o território se estende até parte do município de Cocos, na Bahia. O território faz parte da região dos Gerais, imortalizada por João Guimarães Rosa em obras como “Grande Sertão: Veredas”, “Sagarana” e “Manuelzão e Miguilim”. A diversidade ambiental da região, que abriga espécies endêmicas da fauna e flora do Cerrado, convive com a riqueza cultural dos povos tradicionais sertanejos, ribeirinhos, geraizeiros e vazanteiros*.

O Mosaico Sertão Veredas-Peruaçu foi ampliado de 1.8 milhões de hectares para mais de 3 milhões de hectares. A inclusão de dez unidades de conservação no Mosaico, que agora passam a integrar às 15 UCs já existentes, somando um total de 25 áreas protegidas, ocorreu na última quinta-feira (05), três meses após a proposta ser apresentada para a Câmara Técnica de Gestão Integrada das unidades do MSVP, em que o WWF-Brasil faz parte da coordenação. O conselho consultivo do MSVP aprovou, por unanimidade, o pedido de ampliação do mosaico. Esse é um grande passo para o planejamento e execução de ações conjuntas na prevenção ao desmatamento e maior desempenho das ações de conservação de um dos maiores remanescentes de Cerrado.
