DESCRIPTION

Considering regional development and water security, restoring ecosystems for water services and biodiversity can be articulated in a series of revitalization actions in a basin scale perspective, such as soil conservation measures, prevention of sediments flows to the rivers, regeneration of the natural vegetation, sustainable ecological economics activities for the local population, icthyofauna preservation and implementation of technics for recovering degraded areas. The use of new technologies, green and blue initiatives, sharing of information and fostering of funding for those activities can potentiate programs with these targets. The results converge to water quantity and quality, preserved ecosystems and human well-being.
