Alternativas para a Pequena Agricultura no Tocantins – APA-TO

Land disputes have frequently resulted in impassioned or destructive conflicts throughout Brazil’s history. As a result, the many projects and organizations pushing for agrarian land reform have created demand for technical knowledge that will help small farmers stay on the land, promoting economic development through sustainable natural resource management practices.

With the support of BrazilFoundation, the APA-TO project will support the existing economic cooperative of farmers and small fishermen in the Esperantina region, ensuring access to markets, generating income and promoting environmental conservation.
