Description: The Araripe Plaster Pole, located in the Brazilian semi-arid region, is responsible for producing 97% of the gypsum consumed in Brazil, which is considered the best quality gypsum worldwide given its high purity (Barbosa et al., 2014). However, the energy matrix of the factories involved in the gypsum production process in the Araripe region is characterized by firewood use from the Caatinga, most often the result of illegal deforestation. Moreover, monoculture systems, commonly practiced by traditional agriculture in the region, are characterized by predatory extraction of natural resources of soil and vegetation and the consequent oversimplification of the food web, losing the resilience or environmental plasticity of the ecosystem.
