Brazilian organizations submitted the present document to the United Nations, which they describe the current scenario of compliance with human rights in Brazil. The Amazon Environmental Research Institute (IPAM, anacronym in Portuguese), the Instituto do Homem e Meio Ambiente da Amazônia (Imazon), “Seja Legal com a Amazônia” campaign, the Instituto O Mundo Que Queremos (IOMMQ) and Amigos da Terra – Brazilian Amazon Rainforest, supported by the European organization No Peace Without Justice (NPWJ), joined forces to inform the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of the UN Human Rights Council of their perspectives, with a focus on human rights, the environment and the rights of indigenous peoples.

The submitted contribution provided an analysis of the implementation of recommendations made to Brazil by State Parties in previous stages of the process. It also provided direct recommendations to the Human Rights Council members assessing Brazil to help the country fulfill its international human rights obligations. These include: to increase transparency in government agencies and develop opportunities for public participation in Brazil’s land designation process; to forbid the issuance of land titles for recently deforested areas and forbid future land occupations from being legalized; ensure that plans such as “Auxílio Brasil” (Brazilian social welfare program) and that “Cesta Básica” (food parcel) meet the needs of indigenous peoples, especially in relation to their food and cultural needs, which are crucial for their survival.
