Brazil creates control room for Yanomami indigenous territory
The Brazilian Institute of Environment and Renewable Natural Resources (Ibama) created a situation and control room for the Yanomami indigenous territory which, for the next 180 days, will coordinate, plan and monitor actions to combat illegal mining inside the largest territory of exclusive indigenous use in the country.
The working group will carry out its functions at Ibama Superintendence in Boa Vista, Roraima, the state that together with Amazonas holds the 9.6 million hectares of Yanomami land in the Brazilian territory.
The coordinator of the project will be responsible for monitoring and supporting the operational coordinators of the centers for combating illegal mining on indigenous land, evaluating the work, and liaising with other public institutions involved in this fight.
The coordinator will also be in charge of receiving and cataloging seized goods, organizing administrative processes and preparing a final report on the actions carried out.
This measure is part of a set of actions that federal agencies have been announcing since the Ministry of Health, on January 21, declared a state of public health emergency of national importance to combat health and humanitarian crises affecting the people of the Yanomami indigenous territory.
