Empowering Communities for Nature-Positive and Conflict-Free Supply Chains

Tomé-Açu micro-region in the state of Pará, in the northern region of Brazil, faces a delicate balance between vulnerable rural communities caught in long-standing land-right conflicts and expanding supply chains that source raw materials in the Amazon Biome. To address these tensions, a rights-based approach is adopted, with the ultimate goal of fostering nature-positive and conflict-free supply chains.

The program aims to improve the well-being of families connected to palm oil, cocoa, tropical fruits, and fragrances supply chains, focusing on income, property management, food security, economic resilience, entrepreneurship, and gender equality.
