This May in Quixeramobim, Ceará, and as a part of her ongoing collaborative work with FUNCEME, Cydney Seigerman conducted fieldwork with PhD student Hela Guesmi and research fellow Mariana Macahdo Rios, supervised by Dr. Julien Burte (FUNCEME/CIRAD- UMR G-EAU, France). The fieldwork was part of an on-going multi-institution project to assess strategies for sustainable multi-use of small water resources in semi-arid areas. Over two days, the team used GIS methods to assess landscape features, conducted semi-structured interviews, held a focus group, and did participatory mapping with members of a rural community in the region. They also met with the directors of the regional headquarters of COGERH, the State Water Company of Ceará of Quixeramobim.
