1 Pantanal Forever Programme

2 The Pantanal Basin Upper Paraguay River Basin Bolivia + Paraguay + Brazil = km2 Pantanal = km2 Plateau = km2 Cattle ranching and agriculture are the most important economic activities 95% of the Pantanal territory belongs to private owners

3 Future design of the project The programme was designed together with WWF-Bolivia, therefore one has to consider: Bolivia and Brazil are very different countries Bolivia focused the work at a local level The work will be done as integrated as possibility but as independent as necessary. PROTECTED AREAS Goal: By 2011 the headwaters of the Pantanal basin are protected through the management of the protected areas and the introduction of low impact management practices [1.1] LAND USE CHANGES GOAL: : By 2011 regional development in the Pantanal watershed is carried out in a planned manner and considers the changes in patterns regarding land use and its impacts on the hydrological pulses of the watershed [1.3] SPECIES Goal: By 2011 mechanisms have been established for the conservation of at least one wetland specie [1.2] PRODUCTIVE SYSTEMS Goal: By 2011, three productive activities have shown that through sustainable pratices the quality of life improves for the local population and the natural resources of the Panatnal are preserved.[1.4] PROGRAMME MANAGEMENT Goal: The Pantanal Programme will be an example in the network for transboundary project management [1.5]

4 Protected areas They main objective are: ha more of private reserves In MT and MS (actual ha) Participatory management of PA in Bolivia Basic agenda between transboundary management of protected areas established Monitoring system of protected areas established

5 Species The general objective of this module is to protect two species that are characteristic for the Pantanal and make the programme more attractive for fundraising initiatives. We focused on the Hyacinth Macaw and the Jaguar. In both cases WWF-Brasil is looking for separate funding

6 Land use changes The main objectives are: Basin land use changes are mapped and mitigation proposals formulated. Decision support system at a subbasin level established Information about the development options at a basin level disseminated. Teachers and pupils in Bolivia show a critical attitude assuring the enforcement of environmental legislation

7

8 Land use changes These are the infrastructure development projects being suggested in the Pantanal Basin either by IIRSA or the PAC (Brazilian Government s Economic Acceleration Programme)

9

10 Sustainable production system The general objectives of this module are : To establish an integrated fishery resources management in the Pantanal through the exchange between fishery organisations and the creation of fishery agreements. Further certification of areas for organic cattle ranching. Advance from ha of certified area to ha. Establish a portfolio of tourism for WWF-Brazil and create tourism attraction in Bolivia.

11 Project management The general objectives of this module are : Exchange of information between Bolivia, and the Netherlands. Staff training Documentation Fundraising

12 Connection of the Pantanal Programme The Pantanal Programme has the potential to contribute to many other programmes of WWF-Brasil and is already working to map common themes with other projects Atlantic rain forest Pantanal Programme Water for Life RAPPAM Brazil Private Reserves Productive Systems Land Use Changes Agriculture Development of Juruena IIRSA Amazone Land in the Middle SWA

13 Major challenges Establish a better communication among all partners involved. Look for additional funds. Have a better understanding of the long term strategy of WWF-NL. Integrate more to other programmes of WWF-Brasil Integrate more to other institutions of the Pantanal basin. Overall: The Pantanal is showing results and will contribute significantly to the conservation of the Pantanal the biggest wetland in the world.
