This agro-forestry project facilitates a variety of initiatives focused on supporting both family and commercial level production. Associação dos Pequenos Agrossilvicultores do Projeto Reca (RECA) recognizes the importance of respecting and adapting to the uniqueness of each community’s culture and depth of local knowledge. The organization’s philosophy helps build upon community strengths and harness their knowledge through organized groups that share and support one another.

In 2010, Projeto Reca won the Equator Prize which is awarded biennially to recognize outstanding community efforts to reduce poverty through the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. This video was created as part of our Biodiversity for Local Livelihoods project.
