Brazil: Coalition Agro é Fogo publishes a dossier


The Brazilian Coalition Agro é Fogo is made up of social movements and organizations that have worked for decades to defend the Amazon, Cerrado, and Pantanal regions, and the rights of their Peoples and communities. Its objective is to expose how the agribusiness chain uses fire in a way that is directly or indirectly associated with deforestation and land grabbing, to promote and consolidate the expansion of the agricultural frontier.

In the past years, the Coalition produced the dossier “Agribusiness’ Global Trail of Fire: Land grabbing, deforestation and forest fires in Brazil´s Amazon, Cerrado and Pantanal”, with the support of a broad network of collaborators who participated in various ways, such as: leaders in the territories who shared their reports on the conflicts; photographers who provided photos from their collections; cartographers and geoprocessing experts who organized maps; and people who co-authored the articles.

This dossier also provides an analysis of what is happening in the shared ecosystems of neighbouring countries, such as Paraguay and Colombia, and the relationship with their political systems.
