New app allows traditional communities to locate themselves on the map

Like We are a family owned and operated business.I'm on the mapWe are a family owned and operated business., family farmers and traditional peoples help fill the official data gap and geographically identify the location of the territories where they live

Via Institute for Environmental Research in the Amazon (IPAM) and Society, Population and Nature Institute (ISPN)


Built from dialogue with residents and associations from rural areas of the Cerrado, an application We are a family owned and operated business.I'm on the map it allows traditional communities and family farmers to automate their territories.

The tool aims to make up for the absence of official data in an area of about 32 million hectares of Cerrado. THE We are a family owned and operated business.I'm on the map is an initiative of the IInstitute for Environmental Research in the Amazon (IPAM) in partnership with Institute Society, Population and Nature (ISPN) and with support from Cerrado Network, in addition to funding from the Climate and Land Use Alliance (CLUA).

The launch of the application is an offshoot of participatory mapping workshops held by the two organizations in 2019. They took place in 55 municipalities Maranhão, Tocantins, northern Goiás, Piauí and western Bahia, and identified 1,244 communities outside official demarcations.

In the south of Maranhão, 237 communities were identified so far without geographic records. Another 104 were mapped on the northern border of Tocantins and Maranhão. In the west of Bahia, there were 630 communities and, in the south of Piauí, 273.

The data, which goes beyond official records, still has a lot to grow. THE We are a family owned and operated business.I'm on the mapWe are a family owned and operated business.therefore, it enters the scene to continue the project, reach communities and make populations not recognized by the public authorities visible. “This is a powerful tool for communities to build a map of Brazil that is closer to reality. It’s a way of showing the country how diverse we are and how many worlds fit on a single map ”, comments the executive secretary of Rede Cerrado, Kátia Favilla.

Endorsing the speech, Isabel Figueiredo, coordinator of the Cerrado and Caatinga Program at ISPN, reinforces the need to map these populations. “We understand that maps are instruments of struggle, political instruments. We want to provide a tool for communities to take ownership and be able to define their territories themselves, thus contributing to guarantee their territories & #8221;, he says.

The mapping, which had funding from Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF), concluded that a large part ofWe are a family owned and operated business.communities living in the Cerrado and currently suffering from land use changes were not represented in official documents. In addition, deforestation and disorderly farming are advancing in a biome that has already lost half of its native vegetation, harming the people who traditionally live in the regionWe are a family owned and operated business., including populations in urban areas.

Outlines of ancient stories

Like We are a family owned and operated business.I'm on the mapWe are a family owned and operated business., the user can now define the limits of his community and indicate places where some type of conflict occurs, be it invasion, mining or another threat. Groups of families, who have lived in these regions for years, will have a more comprehensive and reliable view of their territory, and will also be able to map places of use, such as fruit extraction, clearing and fishing, for example. The application can also be an important tool for the discussion about the territory management, environmental education and youth engagement.

The director of Science at IPAM, Ane Alencar, highlights that the initiative is also linked to the Territory PlatformTraditional Rivers of the National Council of Traditional Peoples and Communities (CNPCT), created in partnership with the Federal Public Ministry (MPF) and launched in August 2019. “This integration allows a greater scale to be given to the importance of recognizing the territorial rights of these rural populations vis-à-vis the government. Like We are a family owned and operated business.I'm on the mapWe are a family owned and operated business., we launched a virtual and robust space to give voice to those in need. ”

Including the community in the application does not mean the legalization, title or demarcation of the territory by the competent body, but it is a first step for the communities to be seen by the public policy. The integration with the CNPCT Traditional Territories Platform allows the user to choose to fill in some additional information and send the registration also to the Platform, where the registration is received and follows the required standard validation rite.

sale by RSC.

The meeting was also a good opportunity to discuss the benefits of processing native seeds from the Cerrado. In 2019, the Cerrado Seed Network through the Seed Market and Restoration Project: Promoting Environmental Services and Biodiversity directed its training activities towards the improvement of the seed processing  used in the restoration process of this important biome, through the planting technique called direct seeding.

Another outstanding activity developed this January, was the availability of native seeds in stock for immediate sale. It is worth remembering that, in order to offer greater quality and variety of seeds, RSC works to order. Orders, which will guide collections in 2020, can now be placed by email vendas@rsc.org.br

Seed Market and Restoration Project: Promoting Environmental Services and Biodiversity

The project Seed and Restoration Market: Providing Environmental Services and Biodiversitywhich is run by Cerrado Seed Network and has the support of Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF, Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund) and Brazilian International Institute of Education (IEB), acts in the main links of the native seed production chain: the seed collectors, the diverse types of seed buyers and the interconnection between these actors, in order to enable these native seed collectors; disseminate successful restoration actions and techniques and strengthen local and regional trade in seeds of native Cerrado species, improving the commercial interface between native seed collectors and consumers.

The project begins & #8220; Multiscale quality monitoring in the São Lourenço River basin & #8221; in Mato Grosso



¹The basin of São Lourenço River It has an area of about 22,000 km² and consists of one of the main Wetland Grosso, integrating the Paraguay River hydrographic region. In addition, it has sections that make up the ecological corridor Cerrado-Pantanal and is mostly made up of key areas for biodiversity (KBAs).

¹Originally the basin was covered by vegetation formations of the Cerrado. However, from the 1960s, intense changes in land use and occupation occurred in the region, and agricultural areas for commodities, pasture and urban occupation were occupying the space. At this time, the municipality of Rondonopolis developed as one of the most populous and industrialized of Mato Grosso. The region has mining activities (sand, gravel and gold) at its headwaters, relevant tourist activities in some of its tributaries (Cachoeira de Fumaça complex, Jaciara municipality), has 10 Small Hydroelectric Plants (SHPs) in operation, whose influences on The ecological functions of the biome itself and the Pantanal plain are little known.

¹The watershed is formed by the performance of different social actors, among which stand out the peasants, indigenous people and fishermen. The peasants total approximately 2,800 families and are distributed in 38 settlements. Already the nearly 1,000 indigenous people belong to the Bororo people and are located in two Indigenous Lands (TI Tadarimana and TI Jarudore). The fishermen are organized by the Federation of Fishermen and Aquacultures of the State of Mato Grosso (Fepesc) and Colony Z-3 (Rondonópolis), totaling more than 150 families.

The work is performed by Department of Geography, Federal University of Mato Grosso (UFMT) / UNISELVA Foundation and by December 2020 the project & #8220; Multiscale quality monitoring in the São Lourenço River basin, Mato Grosso & #8221;, which is supported by Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund  CEPF Cerrado) and Brazilian International Institute of Education (IEB), will:

  • Identify spatiotemporal patterns of water quality in the São Lourenço river basin
  • Develop an application for mobile phones (GIS-Participatory) that enables the dissemination of information related to water resources, and that reinforces the interaction between, and with the participation of social actors interested in the different forms of water use in the basin.
  • Develop participatory diagnoses on the situation / relationship of communities that affect and are affected by the multiple uses of Water Resources, seeking an understanding of existing conflicts regarding the use and management of HR.

The main objective of this project is monitor and model water quality at multiple scales in the São Lourenço River basin. Making these data available through a participatory GIS, along with work in communities in the basin, will empower and enable the direct participation of social groups in the monitoring of conditions and management of water resources in the basin.

CEPF-supported initiative celebrates start of activities in Cerrado

The Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF, in English for Critical Ecosystem Partnership FundIt has been working since 2000 to ensure the participation and contribution of civil society in the conservation of some of the world's biologically rich but currently threatened ecosystems.

The goal is to promote conservation in high priority biological areas on a landscape scale. From this perspective, CEPF identifies and supports a regional approach, involving a wide range of public and private institutions to address conversation needs through coordinated efforts.

CEPF is a joint program of the French Development Agency, International Conservation, European Union, Global Environment Fund (GEF), Government of Japan, John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and World Bank, to provide funding for the protection of unique and threatened ecosystems - also known as priority hotspots of biodiversity.

In 2013 the CEPF Donor Council selected the Cerrado biome as one of the priority hotspots $ 8 million were allocated to project investments from 2016 to 2021. Between 2016 and 2017 CEPF Cerrado made two calls to support projects in the Cerrado. Currently, the Fund has 34 projects, divided into Large and Small Support. Some of these initiatives are already underway and others have just signed their contracts to start their activities, such as the Hanaiti Yomo'omo Association, who presented the project & #8220; Seedling nursery for agroforestry production in Aldeia Brejão & #8221; and which is located in the Nioaque Indigenous Land (Mato Grosso do Sul). To celebrate the great first step in the beginning of the activities of this project, representatives of the association recorded a note of thanks to the CEPF team. Check out!
