Scientists Seek Sustainable Plants in Amazon Reserve

October 21, 2005

BRAZIL: The first expedition to the Sustainable Development Reserve of Cujubin, in the municipality of Jutai, Brazil, took place in July. The expedition included Francisco Ademar, executive secretary of the Amazonas’ State general office of environment and maintainable development; Humberto Alfonso Lasmar, mayor of Jutai; Joao Matos, Beraca Ingredients; Jose Maria of Conservation International; and Richard Barlow, second secretary of the UK’s Embassy.
Beraca Ingredients, which works with the Amazonas government and Conservation International, is developing and implementing a management project for the reserve in Cujubin. The goal is to integrate scientific information on natural resources (and its sustainable utilization) with local experience and the creation of new economical alternatives. A seminar on participative planning was held during the first stage of the project, and included 100 members of the riverside population of Jutai.
