Chapada Diamantina National Park (BA)
We are an impact institution that seeks to help society have access to better public services, beginning with development solutions that do not jeopardize nature or the quality of life for the coming generations.
Our solution was to support the implementation of partnerships that unite the efforts of the public sector, private initiatives, and civil society to develop public policies and new management models for protected areas that fulfill the objectives of conserving them and better preparing them to receive the population.
We believe that conservation units can be a substantial source of wealth for Brazil by providing the people with opportunities for leisure, employment, income, health, and well-being. Therefore, they must be central to our country’s development strategies. Building partnerships to provide new resources and tools for managing these spaces can help turn this potential into reality and ensure quality public service.
We also see our work as a means to raise the population’s awareness of these areas’ relevance. The more people can visit them and understand their importance in their own lives, the more these spaces will be valued and, consequently, conserved.
It’s an aspiration planned in the present to enable people in the future to access a heritage that is essential to life and, therefore, needs to be well taken care of.

What we do
We support governments in planning, designing, implementing, and managing public-private park partnerships. We operate in the production, surveying, systematization, and dissemination of specific knowledge and good practices to improve the initiatives developed by the public sector.
We also coordinate between governments, companies, third-sector entities, park visitors, and various other civil society actors, promoting dialogue for these partnerships to be viable and legitimate instruments when facing the multiple points of view involved.
We strive to enhance operations in our supporter network to leverage complementary vocations and expand the impact of our work. In this manner, we also hope to help society understand the potential of partnerships and the parks themselves.
Semeia does not accept any public funds. Our work is offered to the governments we work with without any funds transfer.
