The Integrated Watershed Management Practices for the Pantanal and Upper Paraguay River Basin project is being developed to assist the Government of Brazil in the formulation and implementation of a Strategic

Action Program (SAP) for the Integrated Management of the Pantanal and Upper Paraguay River Basin. The project activities are designed to enhance and provide protection to the environmental functioning of the predominant ecological system, protect the wetland biodiversity, and implement strategic activities that address the root causes of environmental degradation. The strengthening of basin institutions responsible for water resources management in the Basin, the generation and dissemination of information, and the integration of environmental concerns into economic development activities on a sustainable basis are key elements of this project.
