Project Overview 

This project aims to investigate circular bioeconomy practices in a small community along the Tapajós Arapiuns Reserve (Extractive Reserve) with respect to its benefits as activities inside productive chains of social biodiversity in Anã community and its surrounding. Therefore, this study is supported by Participatory Action Research (PAR) aims to investigate the contributions of the circular bioeconomy and the social biodiversity economy inside the forest as an experience of innovative ecosystems in the Tapajos and Arapiuns Reserve.


The research will be carried out in Anã community, located in the Tapajós Arapiuns Extractive Reserve, in Arapiuns River, the number of inhabitants is approximately 83 families (341 residents), 192 men and 149 women, the economy is based on social productive activities of agroecological and permaculture, adapted to the community’s reality. Anã community is far from Santarém city, it takes about four hours by boat from Santarém city to Anã community. The circular bioeconomy has already been reflected in new promising directions for income generation considering the demonstrative s of sustainable development and economy (CEAPS, 2012).


The Anã community realize the impacts day-to-day of climate changing related to the Amazon ecosystem. The expected results of this research will occur during the insertion of researchers in the field to verify the innovation of circular bioeconomy in the riverside region of Resex Tapajós Reserve.
