The “Nascentes do Saí” outreach project released this Tuesday 31 March, the partial report of a study that aims to present a socio-environmental diagnosis of the Distrito do Saí region, located in the municipality of São Francisco do Sul, on the North coast Santa Catarina. The initiative arose from a contract signed between the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (UFSC) and the São Francisco do Sul City Hall, for the preparation of a multidisciplinary technical study.

The study includes the survey of species of animals and plants, as well as physical aspects such as geology, geomorphology, climatology and hydrology, including flow data and water quality of the main rivers in the region. As for the social aspects, the economy, occupation history and archaeological sites are being studied. The project team understands that “the engagement of the local community and the vision of those who live there is of fundamental importance for the legitimacy of the study”, therefore, a profound process of environmental education and governance is also being carried out, with the contribution of partner social actors from the project.

To develop this work with technical rigor and competence, around 50 people participate in the team, including professors and students from UFSC and Univille, in addition to external consultants. Among the results generated are partial reports and a final report, which will include the entire diagnosis carried out by the team. In February 2020, the first partial report of the project, with the preliminary results obtained in the field, was delivered to the São Francisco do Sul Environment Office. It is projected that the study will be completed by the end of this year, with the presentation and analysis of all the results obtained during the execution of the project.
