Axis 1 – Territorial planning, land regularization and environmental management;
Axis 2 – Infrastructure for development;
Axis 3 – Promotion of sustainable productive activities;
Axis 4 – Social inclusion and citizenship;
Axis 5 – Monitoring and accompaniment of socio-environmental constraints in Belo Monte;
Axis 6 – Indigenous peoples and traditional communities;
Axis 7 – Health;
Axis 8 – Education.
For each axis, Elisangela highlighted the main projects, indicating the financial contribution that each axis received and highlighted that the shared management experiences have been bringing important lessons to support the PDRSX in the future.
“We are in a moment of transition in the governance of the PDRSX. In the coming weeks there will be a selection process for new members for the new management committee, and it is very important that the dialogue on preservation, combined with sustainable development, has the participation of all interested actors”, emphasized Elisangela.
