Oct 25, Amazon: The vice-president of the Republic, Hamilton Mourão affirmed, this Wednesday (21), that it is the role of the Federal Government to act as a facilitator for the sustainable development of the Amazon. Mourão, who is also president of the National Council for the Legal Amazon, participated in a virtual event of the BNDES Green Week.


“It is the responsibility of our Government to act as a great inducer and as a great facilitator for us to make this marriage between the investor, the private entity, and our vast wealth characterized by the biodiversity of the Amazon. That this will allow for environmental preservation and, at the same time, the social issue, the question of that population having access to a better quality of life ”, said the vice president during the webinar on the Sustainable Development of the Amazon.



“Any development project has to respect the environmental rules and obviously give a social return to the people who live in that region. In the case of the Amazon, we must move forward, first of all on the issue of ecological-economic zoning, defining the vocation of each of the areas ”, said Mourão.


Green finance, best environmental, social practices and sustainable infrastructure were some of the topics discussed during the webinar, which was attended by the Minister of Women, Family and Human Rights, Damares Alves, and was moderated by the president of the National Bank for Economic Development and Social (BNDES), Gustavo Montezano.



The vice president also stressed that it is necessary to invest in logistics infrastructure in the region to support small local producers. “They are ports and airports, mainly ports in small cities. So that a small producer has a port where he will put his production and receive his remuneration and that production then flows through the Amazon roads. The river is the vein of the Amazon, the wealth of the Amazon flows there, ”he said.


The National Council for the Legal Amazon, according to the vice president, has been working to attract investors, whether national or international, to invest their resources in projects in the Amazon.



Green Operation Brazil

In the webinar, Mourão pointed out that despite difficulties due to the new coronavirus and the lack of personnel and operational capacity in the inspection agencies, Brazil achieved good results with Operation Verde Brasil, which aims to prevent and suppress environmental crimes in the Legal Amazon.


“We launched the Green Brazil Operation that has been carried out since May with the aim of curbing illegalities. Little by little, we are going to move forward in decreasing rates, especially in deforestation. We have to face it and recognize that it is a problem. ”, He assessed.


He cited that more than R $ 1.7 billion in fines were apprehended, over 8 thousand tons of ore were seized, over 170 people were arrested, 700 equipment was destroyed and more were seized and handed over to the city halls of the region. In addition to an enormous amount of illegal wooden cubic meters seized.


The plan, according to Mourão, is to continue with operations and strengthen the operational capacity of the inspection bodies.



Abrace Marajó Project

The Minister of Women, the Family and Human Rights, Damares Alves, highlighted the Abrace Marajó program, launched this year with the aim of improving the human development index of the municipalities that make up Ilha do Marajó, in Pará, a state that is part of of the Legal Amazon.


“This plan was very well built with advice and now monitoring and evaluation and also investment by BNDES in the region. This program is a pilot because it brings sustainable development ”.


On the 9th, President Jair Bolsonaro and Minister Damares Alves were in Breves, Pará, and announced an action plan with measures to be carried out by 2023 to boost social development on Marajó Island.
