Capacitação Técnica e Socioambiental para Assentados de Reforma Agrária de Unaí
Capacitação Técnica e Socioambiental para Assentados de Reforma Agrária de Unaí
The region in which Unaí is located is the stage for widespread agribusiness-driven development, with heavy impacts on native environment and family farmer communities as the result (conversion into homogeneous productive landscapes and direct or indirect pressure to leave their lands).
The project proposes to perform activities aimed at sustainable use and recovery of degraded Cerrado areas with agrarian reform settlers in the municipality of Unaí (Minas Gerais), with special emphasis placed on the Santa Clara settlement. The objective is to offer capacity-building for farmers on production of seedlings of native plant species, recovery of degraded areas, as well as good practices in processing of products made of native fruits, targeting qualification of the group for processing and marketing of typical Cerrado biome products. The project will indirectly contribute to generation of income for settler farmer families in the Santa Clara Settlement Project and other settlements and family farmer communities in the municipality and region
