On February 14 and 15 in Brasilia, Brazil (DF), Indigenous, quilombolas and traditional communities representatives of the National Steering Committee (CGN) of DGM Brasil got together for the 6th ordinary meeting.

During the meeting a synthesis of the monitoring, evaluation, and referrals related to the subprojects was carried out. This included an analysis of communication processes and presentation of the baseline, which brings a socioeconomic panorama of all the communities linked to the subprojects supported by DGM Brasil.

Also worthy of mention is the speech by leader of the Quilombola Community of Cedro and representative of the Pacari Articulation of Medicinal Plants of the Cerrado, Ms. Lucely Morais Pio, who assumes the coordination of the CGN, a position formerly occupied by the indigenous leader Srewe Xerente.
