Socioeconomic monitoring program of the Ferro Carajás and S11D Project

Socioeconomic monitoring program of the Ferro Carajás and S11D Project

The monitoring of socio-economic indicators of Ferro Carajás S11D was carried out to comply with the Basic Environmental Plan that conditioned its installation license. Ninety-four indicators were collected, worked on visually, analyzed and presented every six months to a group of local actors, multipliers of information. They gathered data from indicators such as:

    • Health;
  • Education;
  • Demography;
  • Social Care;
  • Infrastructure;
  • Security;
  • Real estate valuation;
  • Basic food staples, among others.

With its own techniques, research parameters and methods were created to identify the potential impacts of the enterprise on topics of interest to society, not observable in the data available from secondary sources.

For Vinicius Corrêa, manager of studies and research at Synergia, direct action and community involvement were essential for the good results. “It was very satisfying to see the scope and repercussion of the results of the work involving public authorities, civil society actors and the entrepreneur himself. I think the feedback we gave allowed for a joint reflection to control, monitor and mitigate the impacts of mining on the territory”, he comments.

Synergia’s own methodologies were established to monitor topics in which secondary sources were not sufficient to form reliable indicators. Among these themes were the evolution of urban spots, the crime rate, the appreciation/depreciation of real estate and the cost of the basic food basket.
