Our Land: indigenous land management in southern Amazonas

The International Education Institute of Brazil (IEB) and the Native Amazon Operation (OPAN) support the National Plan for Implementation of the Policy for the Land and Environmental Management of Indigenous Lands (PNGATI) in the southern region of the state of Amazonas. Working directly with indigenous associations, the project seeks to institutionally strengthen these organizations.

The “Our Land” project supports a Small Projects Fund that can be accessed by the indigenous associations themselves, according to their needs concerning management of their territories.

Building on its experience in capacity building projects, the IEB also seeks to improve the sustainability of the production chains of Brazil nuts, sustainable fishery (Pirarucu) and other non-timber forest products.
