Description: Custodia Policial Taba Jopoi and Curuguaty, Paraguay. Villagers, including women and children, in a stand off over land rights and pesticide spraying in soy fields near their homes are confronted by armed military and police personnel. In 2012 a violent clash on a soy estate in Curuguaty was used as a pretext for the impeachment of President Lugo...The Community Conservation Resilience Initiative (CCRI) in Paraguay began with discussion and debate with three rural communities in eastern Paraguay and the lower Chaco region. All three communities face various challenges, such as the spread of industrial agriculture, and area actively engaged in restoring habitats and reversing environmental damage. Current successful initiatives include; agroecological practice, saving seeds and restoring degraded soils and habitats, all of which could be expanded and replicated with the right support. This CCRI has focused on dialogue with women and young people in particular, as both groups are identified as the principle victims of these pressures on the communities’ territories and cultures. They are also key actors in the recovery of communities’ knowledge, practices, conservation capacities and resilience.
