On three of the five days of the event, CONTAG also carried out a new stage of the training in sustainable agriculture and resilience to climate change, with debates on legislation and rural credit, among others.
The National Confederation of Rural Farm Workers and Family Farmers (CONTAG) continued its training process in sustainable agriculture and resilience to climate change, now carried out in person. For three days in July, they discussed ecosystem services, legislation and rural credit, among other subjects. The other two days of the meeting were allocated to other agendas. In the former, representatives from the Northeast federations deliberated over large energy projects and the impacts on family farming, discussing their positioning on the topic. In the latter, the federations from the North spoke about carbon credits – with the intention of creating a proposition of jurisdictional carbon credits for the states.
