The Seashore Project is a program developed in partnership between the Department of Extraction and Sustainable Rural Development of the Ministry of Environment, through the Coastal Management, Heritage and the Secretary of the Union Ministry of Public Union, and seeks to organize all the activities along the waterfront, from trade to the management of the communities living in these areas.
“We came to seek more information about the project precisely because of the concern that we have to conserve our beach, yet with many areas of native vegetation“, said the representative of the municipality of Alcantara (MA) and first lady Vilciléia Costa Lima.
For her, the coastal planning will contribute to the preservation of the environment, sustainability and local employment and income generation for the community.
