Delegation of the European Union to Brazil
The EU's international development cooperation with Brazil supports more than 100 projects all across the country.
The project aims to contribute to the protection of the rights of children and adolescents suffering from socioeconomic vulnerability, with special attention to adolescents of black origin, living in the poorest areas of the municipalities involved.
The CataPampa project aims to contribute to the socioeconomic inclusion of collectors and waste pickers who are in a situation of vulnerability and poverty. It also stimulates their activities in networks by strengthening collectors of recyclable materials organisations.
The project has a dual appeal: defending democracy and protecting the rights of riparian, quilombola, fisher and indigenous communities, and the limits that may contain the unilateral advance of oil exploration and its consequent and constant violations of these same rights.
The general objective of the project is to contribute to the fulfillment of the political and civil rights of the remaining quilombo communities in the Recôncavo Baiano territory, providing means of action and capacities to improve its incidence and influence in the construction of public policies.
The overall objective of the project is to support actions that facilitate a structured dialogue between local authorities and civil society, contributing to the prevention of drug use and the socio-economic reintegration of chemical dependents in situations of vulnerability and social risk.
