In March 2016, the implementation of a pilot pasture rehabilitation measure in Itaocara, RJ has been finalized. With the support of Pesagro-Rio, Emater-Rio staff members and the property owner Paulo César Alves, three terraces have been installed and planted with native woody species. Additionally, the project team installed a large public billboard right in front of the pilot measure, indicating all participating partners and the general intentions of the activity.
In June 2015 a training course on hydrological modelling was held in Nova Friburgo. The course was supported by the INTECRAL-project and organized by Rio Rural/INTECRAL partners from the Secretaria de Estado de Agricultura e Pecuária (SEAPEC, Brazil) and the University of Jena (Germany).
Since June 2015, the work package 3 team and the local offices of Emater-Rio and Pesagro-Rio are implementing a pilot rehabilitation measure on a pasture hill in Itaocara, RJ.
