Abstract


This report aims to analyse, from a sociological perspective, the socioeconomic impact from the environmental damage (massive death of fish, floods caused by a raise in the river level) and the resulting  social conflicts faced by the population in Ferreira Gomes, a county in Amapa State, in the far north of Brazil, concerning the consequences from the constructions and functioning of the hydroelectric plants Ferreira Gomes, Coaracy Nunes and Cachoeira Caldeirão. For that, the schedule here is going to pass through a characterization of the historical  assumption that ground and legitimize the development pattern in force in Amazonia, and empirically shows, based on data gathered in Ferreira Gomes, pertinent to the processes of effectuation of the constructions of the above mentioned projects and the following impacts. It is understood that the theoretical scope here taken concerns the efforts to consolidate an “Amazonia Sociology”, which goal is to provide judgmental grounds and to dimension the socio-political sphere of the anthropogenic factors resulting from the environmental problems, considering the needed interdisciplinary dialogue which heuristic potencial is able to provide means of intervention and management of the environmental and social conflicts that arise from the big development projects for Amazonia.
