Public policy

Public policy

Through participation in networks, forums, committees, municipal councils and other collegiate bodies, we mobilize the population to defend environmental rights. 

We contributed to the construction of environmental laws, programs, plans and effective proposals for structuring public policies aimed at conservation, restoration and sustainable use of land, with direct benefit to our communities and biodiversity, on which our quality of life depends.

Copaíba plays an important role in regional leadership, acting in the development of socio-environmental public policies in the 19 municipalities of the basins served. It participates in direct actions of collegiate bodies and discussion forums with national and international recognition and carries out specific projects, which aim to improve the socio-environmental quality of the institution's own territory of operation and of the entire Atlantic Forest biome, which originally covers from Piauí to the Rio Grande do Sul.
