A cooperation project in three countries: Brazil, Angola and Mozambique


Theme: Biodiversity
Tag: AngolaBrazilMozambiqueAfricaLatin America

This European Union-funded international cooperation project involves a series of activities in three Portuguese-speaking regions of Latin America and Africa: Bahia State in Brazil, the metropolitan area of Maputo in Mozambique and Namibe Province in Angola. The project helps local authorities to define and adopt public policies to promote the protection and development of biodiversity, improving the population’s standard of living and reducing the economic and social vulnerability of small producers. Its strategy is underpinned by the involvement of all local stakeholders – public, social and economic – to help public policies better meet local needs. The images in this exhibition were taken by two professional photographers: Paola Viesi, from Italy, who took photos in Angola and Mozambique, and Iêda Lúcia Marques de Almeida, from Brazil, who worked in Bahia State. The photographs depict the communities and producers identified by mapping local and traditional products. The same producers participated in the subsequent stages of the project, which involved technical assistance activities to improve certain phases of production, and working groups (usinas) to discuss practical requirements and political bodies linked to the various sectors.

Online ticket sales are now closed. During the days of the event (September 22-26), all remaining tickets will be available at the Event Reception on the ground floor of the Regione Piemonte building in Piazza Castello and at the reception of Eataly Torino Lingotto. Tickets for the conferences will also be available directly at the Carignano Theater.
