Sustainable Brazilian Ocean and Coasts Initiative
by Instituto Virtual Para o Desenvolvimento Sustentavel - IVIDES.org/ Virtual Institute for the Sustainable Development - IVIDES.org (Scientific community)
The objective of this commitment is to contribute for the development of marine mentality at Brazil. The implementation methodology consists mainly of guiding and conducting research related to marine sustainability; publish informational material on the sustainability of coastal and marine areas.

For example, we developed a website to display the results of a collaborative mapping of the effects of the oil spill that occurred in Brazil in 2019 (http://www.ivides.org/index/index.php/oil-pollution-participatory-map); another research product was the sustainability atlas for the coastal municipalities of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (http://www.ivides.org/atlas_en/).

We published a free e-book, called "Environmental management and sustainability in the coastal and marine areas: concepts and practices", available at http://livro.ivides.org. Description in english: http://www.ivides.org/livro/Apresentacao_Raquel_LIVRO_07_02_2020(EN).pdf.

The president at IVIDES.org, Dr. Raquel Deziderio Souto, is currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Graduate Program in Geography at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. Its object of research is the development of a Public Participatory Geographic Information System (PPGIS) to map environmental problems in the coastal zone of the State of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), as a pilot area.
