Networks and Collaboration
All PSA work is carried out in a participatory manner, together with social actors who work both locally and regionally, as well as nationally and internationally.
One means of ensuring participation of the communities is to support their representatives, in the implementation of projects or in defense of collective social rights. Thus, PSA collaborates with partner local associations and grassroots organizations who are empowered through seminars, workshops, advocacy, and participation in events and councils.
An example is the Active Forest Forum, composed by the partner grassroots organizations. With consultation and participatory management mechanisms, the Forum makes the diagnosis to ease continuous monitoring of results and for the joint planning of actions. With this, communities are supported in management of territorial development processes, better exercise of citizenship and the articulation with other actors (especially bodies connected to public policies). In addition, the articulation with public bodies occurs through various agreements and partnerships, which contribute not only to implementation of PSA projects but also to the appropriateness of public policies aimed at these communities.
In a broader sense, PSA collaborates with NGOs, social movements and intersectoral work groups (including public bodies) to face the major challenges in Brazil and, especially, the Amazon region, collaborating in the construction of social, economic and environmental solutions and improved public policies.
