Lecture 1. The construction of knowledge to promote Agroecology in the production of healthy foods, preservation of biomes and reduction of inequal - Regilane Fernandes da Silva (MDA); Iracema Ferreira de Moura (MDA)
Lecture 2. Towards knowledge structuring in territorial development programs – Paulo Eduardo de Melo (Director of Reforestation and Recovery of Degraded Areas, DEFLO/SDI/MAPA)
Moderator: Tatiana Sá (Embrapa Amazônia Oriental)

Knowledge construction and adoption
Key words *education, training, knowledge sharing, knowledge for sustainable development, empowerment of poor communities
Introduction and aims *
Knowledge generation in Brazil is at a more mature stage, with research institutions over 50 years old, such as Embrapa. However, the large number of researches and publications do not always refer to the same intensity of adoption by communities that need it. For this reason, training and development involves ways of building knowledge, especially to solve problems in communities farther away from a continental country. The objective of this session is to present how the construction of knowledge can shelter research results and promote an adaptation process according to the needs of each of the adoption sites in a plural country.
Abstract *
Brazil is a country of continental dimensions and with the most diverse ways of life and production possible. Knowledge generation in Brazil is at a more mature stage, with research institutions over 50 years old, such as Embrapa. However, the large number of researches and publications do not always refer to the same intensity of adoption by communities that need it. For this reason, training and development involves ways of building knowledge, especially to solve problems in communities farther away from a continental country. The objective of this session is to present how the construction of knowledge can shelter research results and promote an adaptation process according to the needs of each of the adoption sites in a plural country. This session is expected to achieve a sharing of ways of adopting technological innovation based on the collective construction of knowledge from the plurality of ideas and socio-economic-environmental conditions.
 
Expected outcomes *
This session is expected to achieve a sharing of ways of adopting technological innovation based on the collective construction of knowledge from the plurality of ideas and socio-economic-environmental conditions.
