Participatory Monitoring in the Cazumbá-Iracema Extractivist Reserve

The Cazumbá-Iracema Extractivist Reserve (Resex), in Acre state, was created in 2002 at the request of the local communities. It has over 750 thousand hectares of land and is home to around 350 families. The majority of the work found there consists of monitoring the Brazil Nut trees’ growth and production, which will eventually lead to harvests, so the families living in the region are able to sustain their community. A protocol was designed especially for the Resex area, and as you will see in the video, was tested and is currently being implemented by the community today.
