Maranhão Brazil
Description

In the areas in the Amazonian biome of the State of Maranhão, grain producers are included in the multisectoral commitment of the Soy Moratorium. This commitment results from the fulfillment of requirements that guarantee a production free of deforestation, whether legal or illegal. The commitment is managed by a group (Soybean Working Group) composed of civil society actors, traders, federal government and financial institutions. The moratorium applies to the entire Amazon biome.

Description

It should also be noted that the IPAM has been maintaining partnerships in the last two years with the indigenous people of the State, in particular with those occupying the Araribóia Indigenous Land (Guajajara People). More specifically, IPAM maintains climate change training activities in collaboration with COCALITI (Coordination of Caciques and Leaders of the Araribóia Indigenous Land) with COAPIMA (Coordination of Organizations and Joints of the Indigenous Peoples of Maranhão). In 2016 and 2017, IPAM promoted specific workshops on climate change and territorial and environmental monitoring with indigenous peoples. At the time, the application "Alerta Clima Indígena" was presented to the indigenous people. The application aims to send information about fire and deforestation to the Indigenous Lands and also to support the territorial monitoring, thus helping in the management of the territory and consequently in the maintenance of the forest areas.
