Abstract:

The objective of the study was to analyze the integrated inspection model of the Superintendencies of Ibama do Acre, Amazonas and Rondônia (integrated action) carried out in the Ponta do Abunã region as a more efficient and effective inspection model to be carried out in the State of Rondônia and in Western Amazon. Materials and Method: it's a case study. Two semi-structured instruments were applied with three subjective questions, comprising three axes: 1st Axis - characterization of the positive aspects; 2nd Axis - characterization of negative aspects; 3rd Axis - pointing out improvement measures to be integrated into the inspection model. The first instrument was applied to the Focus Group, consisting of the members who participated in the environmental inspection operation “Ponta do Abunã” and the second instrument applied to the Steering Group of the institutions that promote and execute environmental policies. Results: it was possible to perceive that the integrated inspection model has a greater protection of the environment in all spheres, given the improvement in the organization and the maximization of the use of resources. However, there is a lack of equipment and a logistics structure for the transportation and storage of seized goods. Thus, it could be perceived that there was an improvement in the State's capacity to prosecute violators, however, improvement actions are needed when dealing with the seized assets.Final considerations: it stands out as a positive point pointed out by the group the greater protection of the environment in all spheres, given the improvement in the organization and the maximization of the use of resources. The integration between the political and administrative entities allows inspection action of superior technical quality and with lower costs. In the perception of inspection agents, actions occur infrequently and this results in the loss of inspection effectiveness. According to the researched group, a more continuous inspection would bring better results.
