This Wednesday (15th of June), CeDHE (Center for Human Rights and Companies of FGV Rights in SP) holds an event on the current challenges and opportunities in promoting best business practices, based on the prevention, mitigation and repair of adverse impacts on humans, their rights and the environment. You can register for the event here.

The debates will be based on the results of two studies recently completed by FGV CeDHE on the promotion of transparency and decent work in value chains and on the application of a monitoring solution for the quality of life of riverside communities forcibly displaced from their territory due to the installation of the Belo Monte Hydroelectric Power Plant.
