The seminar, attended by over 100 representatives, was headed by the President of FUNAI, Marcio Meira, and counted with most of FUNAI’s senior directors as well as their regional administrators for the Amazon region. Several indigenous rights organizations were present, plus representatives of GTZ, USAID, Conservation International, TNC, Instituto Socioambiental, among others. Michael Jenkins, Jacob Olander and Beto Borges attended on behalf of Forest Trends. A key outcome of the Seminar was that Marcio Meira stated publicly that FUNAI is very supportive of the Surui to develop the carbon project and wants it to be a successful model to be implemented in other indigenous territories throughout the country. He proposed to develop a working group at the National Committee for Indigenous Policy (Comissão Nacional de Política Indigenista) to discuss the development of carbon projects within indigenous lands.
