Présentation
The project aims to create an improved process for oil extraction of Cerrado plants, using the Macaúba (Acrocomia aculeata) nut as the key species in a region of semi-arid cerrado fields. Located in the Riachão Valley, part of the São Francisco Basin, this region hosts activities such as extensive cattle raising and irrigated agriculture, which privatize the land and require deforestation. With the possibility of social and economic use of the coconut groves and disseminating proposals for agroforestry and wildlife management systems, the project will contribute to higher income for traditional populations in the region, as well as helping to avoid deforestation diversity in the Cerrado.

Caractéristiques et résultats
The project will contribute toward higher income for traditional populations through the development of an improved process of extraction of Macaúba (Acrocomia aculeata) nut oil and its dervatives and their commercialization. It will also help to conserve the biological diversity of the Cerrado and to reduce the soil degradation process in the Riachão Valley.
