The Surui Indians of the Brazilian Amazon made contact with the outside world for the first time only 40 years ago. This contact inaugurated a period of settlement, road construction and disease which decimated their population and their ancestral lands. Now the Surui are working with Forest Trends, the Katoomba Group, Amazon Conservation Team and other partners to wed sophisticated mapping technology and global carbon finance to protect their culture and forests. By supporting processes of local consultation and planning, mapping, technical carbon assessments and links to markets, the Katoomba Incubator and partners propose to catalyze carbon finance for the protection of over 240,000 hectares of native forest and the support of a sustainable future for the Surui.
