Ashoka commemorates and celebrates the life and work of this deceased Ashoka Fellow.
This description of Roberto Lamego's work was prepared when Roberto Lamego was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2000.
This profile is dedicated to the memory of Roberto Lamego who passed away in 2016. Roberto Lamego is creating alternatives for land use that provide farmers and others with economic incentives for preserving the rapidly disappearing forests of Brazil's Atlantic Forest region. He is changing the relation between humans and the forest from one of extraction to one of cultivation and conservation.
