04/11/2021 13:26

The Environmental Education and Governance team of the Nascentes do Saí outreach project, under the coordination of Professor Rodrigo de Almeida Mohedano from the Department of Sanitary and Environmental Engineering, promoted, throughout April and May, a series of training sessions with the community of the Distrito do Saí, in the city of São Francisco do Sul (SC). There were four short courses given by professors and researchers from UFSC, in addition to self-employed professionals who work in the socio-environmental field. Through video classes, contents on mapping, protected areas, ecosystem services and income generation from conservation units, were addressed.

In the first short course, participants learned about the recognition of territory through cartographic representations. The maps were used to identify the location, topographic characteristics, vegetation, soil use and the process of human occupation in the Distrito do Saí. In the second course, concepts related to protected areas were shared, such as permanent preservation areas and conservation units, and the main laws that regulate the subject in Brazil. Furthermore, the participants were able to understand the process of creation and management of these conservation units, as well as the main instruments of management and social participation.

The third short course dealt with the theme of ecosystem services and sustainable ways to use and manage the territory of the Distrito do Saí. From this, participants were able to identify the natural resources, the services nature can offer and recognize the value of these goods for the promotion of quality of life. Finally, in the last short course, the possibilities for generating income from protected areas were explored. Activities that can economically benefit the resident population of the Distrito do Saí were identified, such as tourism potential through community-based tourism, meliponiculture and agroforestry.

All classes are available on Youtube. More information on the project’s website, Instagram and Facebook.

‘Nascentes do Saí’ outreach project presents a socio-environmental diagnosis partial report

04/11/2021 13:23

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.
