BRAZIL: Land Tenure Reform/Settlement Communities/Rainforest-Ecology

<< B A H I A >>

This project with multiple objectives is in the Mata Atlantica (Coastal
Forest) area in the Southern Cone of the State of Bahia. This is where
local poor communities are struggling to gain access to land via
articulated political effort.

There are over a dozen officially recognized Land Reform Settlemnts in this
region, where former landless peasants are striving to promote efforts
to save the remnants of this unique patch of rich, bio-diverse forest, as
well as to secure their access to land by changing the parameters of Land
Tenure in that area.

We have been contacted by leaders of these communities seeking help with
the various projects they deem vital. These projects will deal with
Reforestation, Human Rights, Youth Development, Education & Training,
Primary Care and Health, as well as Ecological issues.
