Resettlement and resumption of productive activities at Açu Superport

Resettlement and resumption of productive activities at Açu Superport

In 2010, the implementation of the Industrial District of São João da Barra – DISJB began. A project was carried out with the objectives of supporting the development of northern Rio de Janeiro and taking advantage of the proximity to the Campos Basin oil region, as well as the installation of the Açu Superport port complex, in an area of 70 km2. To be viable, the DISJB needed to relocate families with rural characteristics, residing in its polygon.

Residents’ produce is sold to buyers in the municipality and resold to other regions, including the capital and the Lakes Region. In the period from December 2012 to December 2013, a harvest of more than 20 tons of vegetables generated an income of more than R$ 25 thousand for producers.

The Resettlement Program served 95 families and was named Vila da Terra. The architectural models of the new homes were developed in conjunction with the families, reflecting their habits of using the spaces. In addition, a permanent duty and systematic visits were established to accompany families, offering them the assistance needed during the period of adaptation to changes.

The productive restructuring project offered to farmers, with technical support to improve production and income, was exemplary and resulted in video and book records, being recognized today as a milestone in the quality of life of that population.

A producers' village, Vila da Terra, was created. What used to be an abandoned cane farm became an established community, with trade flows, and became an agricultural production center.

The company came, worked the land. Then I started to plant and I am harvesting the okra seedling until today. Then they set up this vegetable garden for me and I'm enjoying it. I want to make a property here that people find really beautiful.
