Paulo Ferreira, the Secretary of Environment of Caseara, explained to us about the importance of the Araguaia River in the region. He demonstrated the severity of the drought, and emphasized that “without water there is no agriculture”, essential to the region.
In his testimonial he explains that the BJF is doing crucial work in the region, to prevent the worsening of these droughts and extreme weather conditions. Trees retain water and forest restoration plays a crucial role in regulating weather patterns and preventing the exacerbation of future droughts. We are grateful for Paulo’s support and the partnership we have with the Municipality of Caseara for our mission!
