Ecoa-UOL highlights CIPÓ’s report on environmental crimes in the Amazon

The news channel Ecoa-UOL highlighted CIPÓ’s publication “Operations to combat environmental crimes in the Amazon: challenges and best practices“, authored by researchers Flávia do Amaral Vieira and Luísa Falcão, both from CIPÓ.

In the article, Vieira commented on the increasingly organised nature of criminal groups perpetrating and profiting from environmental crimes, which include public servants in environmental agencies. “Criminals are often able to infiltrate the forestry credit systems, defrauding documents and data”, frequently with the involvement of employees from the environmental agencies themselves.

CIPÓ’s study was also featured in InfoAmazônia and Combating Environmental Racism websites.
