Integrated Management of Aquatic Resources in the Amazon (AquaBio)

Project Summary

Project Development Objective (PDO) is to support the mainstreaming of a multi-stakeholder, integrated management approach to the conservation and sustainable use of freshwater biodiversity (GIBRAH) in public policies and programs in the Brazilian Amazon River Basin. This would in part be achieved through the generation and dissemination of sub-regional experiences that promote and facilitate the implementation of GIBRAH in the whole Amazon Basin.
