A podcast about Brazil’s changing territorial, environmental, and agricultural policies. With the voices of those who are working to reconstruct, reimagine; and redivide. From urban to rural. In the Amazon and beyond.
Few national elections received as much global attention last year as the ones organised in Brazil. With the future of the Amazon at stake, the tight race between Jair Bolsonaro and Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva seemed to have turned into an international affair.
Lula’s inauguration came with the vow to overhaul environmental and territorial policies. Within this ‘zero deforestation’ and sustainable development strategy, civil society actors, previously silenced by Bolsonaro, are promised to play a key role.
Beyond the mediatised political transition, this series gives voice to civil society actors and populations who are directly impacted by and actively challenged the country’s territorial and environmental management. From urban space to indigenous territories, from agricultural landscapes to protected areas.
