Project Description

Fishers in Araguacema and Couto de Magalhães face challenges created by unreliable food supply, limited conservation practices, and inconsistent income. Cooperativa de Trabalho, Prestação de Serviços, Assistência Técnica e Extensão Rural (COOPTER) works to establish cooperation agreements to facilitate lake fishing, develop resource management plans for pirarucu (arapaima gigas) stocks and improve processing methods and income-generation opportunities. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Brazil. COOPTER’s activities bolster efforts to counteract environmental degradation and protect the natural resources that communities depend on.
