Alfredo Wagner Berno de Almeida

Anthropologist, lecturer and leader of the New Social Cartography unit at Manaus University, Amazonia. Alfredo has been practicing community mapping techniques with increasing success through the New Social Cartography unit. The process is based upon community self-empowerment whereby the anthropologists and cartographers train communities to map their own territories providing them with the path to control their own autonomy and the ability to lobby politically for the recognition of their land rights.
