An investigation on how large enterprises are changing the face of the Amazon region and the lives of its inhabitants. The news team of the Public Agency (Agência Pública) for Investigative Journalism went to three regions of the Amazon to understand the new wave of developmentalism. Between the months of July and October 2012, they traveled the mining pole in Maraba (PA), the Tapajós River Basin, and Porto Velho and the dams of the Madeira river.
Agência Pública launched its first book-report, Public Amazon, with an open debate on the issues and threats of the Amazon.
Works negotiated by the BNDES in the South American Amazon include hydro with cracks, leaky pipeline and a road that shook the presidency of Bolivia.
In the name of globalization, BNDES financing of Brazilian contractors abroad grew 1185% in 10 years.
