INCRA - National Institute of Colonization and Agrarian Reform

‘Created in 1970 during the military government of General Emílio Garrastazu Médici, to be the executive organ of agrarian reform. It was extinguished in 1987, during the first government of the New Republic - of José Sa rney - and recreated in 1989, by the same administration. Today, it is a part of the Ministry of Agrarian Development (MDA). From its foundation, it has undertaken projects of rural colonization and settlement’ (Fernandes, Bernardo Mançano.
