Indigenous producers of Matto Grosso conserving natural resources of the Amazon through non-timber forest economies.

Bio:

The "Water Pact" (Pacto das Águas) project is focused on continuing programs that support the strengthening of social organization within indigenous and traditional communities (Arara, Cinta-Larga, Rikbaktsa and Gavião) in northwestern Mato Grosso. This effort includes expanding non-timber forest management and strengthening production chains of the Brazil nut and native rubber gum. Another integral part of the project's second phase is environmental education geared towards conservation of natural resources and environmental and land management. This educational focus is coupled with efforts to strengthen leadership and community associations within the Guariba-Roosevelt Extractive Reserve and Indigenous territories.
