Water management project in the Amazon region should benefit more than a thousand people

Coca-Cola Brasil announces, this Tuesday (11), during the company’s participation in the Sustainability Week of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), an investment of R$4 million in projects aimed at promoting and guaranteeing access to safe water for communities in Amazonas and Pará.

Operating in the Amazon region for 34 years, the company supports the “Water + Access” program, where at least 85 communities have benefited, serving almost 15 thousand people in Amazonas, Pará and Bolivia.

Since 2017, the program has impacted 183 thousand people in 430 communities in 10 Brazilian states, using self-sustainable models for community water management.

The work is carried out in partnership with the Sustainable Amazon Foundation (FAS). In this new stage, access to water will be extended to 1,332 people directly and 273 indirectly, covering four riverside communities.

This increase represents a 19% increase in the total number of communities in the reserve with an artesian well.

“Guaranteeing community populations access to safe water, especially at a time when river droughts are becoming an increasingly present reality, certainly makes us convinced that we are minimizing the suffering of those who care for our ecosystem”, highlights Valcléia Solidade, superintendent of Sustainable Community Development at FAS.

As part of this initiative, four community water collection, treatment and storage systems will be installed in rural municipal elementary schools.

The technology used in the communities includes sustainable energy sources generated by photovoltaic systems and a water treatment plant with a mineral purification filter.

The facilities will be capable of generating a total of 56 million liters of drinking water per year.
