Thursday, July 6
3:10 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: Maryland C

This article proposes to present territorial conflict around Quilombo Mumbuca over Mata Escura Biological Reserve situated at the Valley of Jequitinhonha River, at the Brazilian State of Minas Gerais. Cartography is used to represent the conflict, to highlight community relationship with their territory, land right, uses of natural resources and biodiversity protection. We are not ruling out the need for environmental conservation, which is fundamental for the reproduction of human life. We are only pointing out the greater vulnerability of traditional communities, face the transformations of the modern world. The State shall have the duty to monitor and control environmental impacts, regardless of what kind of people or what is the way to use the territory and its resources.
