New OSócioBio Website and WTT as a New Member of the Network


Discover the new website of the Observatory of Sociobiodiversity Economies (ÓSocioBio) here.

The Observatory of Sociobiodiversity Economies (OSócioBio) announced the launch of its new website, a platform dedicated to promoting connections, knowledge, and transformations with inspiring stories, news, articles, and political incidences. The site offers valuable resources on public policies oriented towards sociobiodiversity, as well as a central source for updates on the network’s work.

WTT Joins the Network

The Observatory recently held its second in-person meeting in Brasília on March 19 and 20, with the aim of planning key areas of action for 2024. The meeting was attended by 39 organizations and highlighted the importance of collaboration and strategic planning to achieve common objectives. It was at this meeting that WTT was announced as a member of the network, alongside WRI. The participation of organizations in the group strengthens the mission of preserving sociobiodiversity through coordinated and collaborative actions.

Political Incidence and Strategic Planning

In the matrix of priorities for political incidence, OSócioBio highlighted, at the March in-person meeting, the continuity of dialogues with the Federal Government to build the National Sociobioeconomics Plan and regulate the National Policy on Payment for Environmental Services (PNPSA), both the responsibility of the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MMA). It also emphasized the need for adjustments to access by traditional peoples and communities to public purchases, such as the Food Acquisition Program (PAA), the National School Feeding Program (PNAE), and the Policy Guaranteeing Minimum Prices for Sociobiodiversity Products (PGPM-Bio). In addition to these, ÓSocioBio will also work on other policies such as: implementation of Tax Reform; National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (EPANB); National Policy on Science, Technology, and Innovation; incidence in IBGE; and in the G20 Sherpa Track Bioeconomy Initiative.

WTT in Context

Integrating with OSócioBio directly aligns with key projects that WTT has been articulating in recent months, such as developing an innovative solution to address challenges related to community demand in the value chain of Brazil nut and designing participatory public policies that direct financial and human resources to mission-oriented innovations in the Amazon. Being part of networks like the Amazon Nut Observatory (OCA) and OSócioBio also strengthens projects whose objectives are part of orchestrating innovations for the bioeconomy in the Amazon, given that dialogue with communities, local actors, and direct contact with those in the field and already working on these articulations are essential for developing innovative solutions.
