Latin America and Caribbean Region - Environmental Protection and Sustainable Development of the Guarani Aquifer System Project (Inglês)

The long-term objective of the process started through the Environmental Protection and Sustainable Development of the Guarani Aquifer System Project is the sustainable management and use of the Guarani Aquifer System. This System is situated in the eastern and south central areas of South America, and underlies parts of Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay. This project is a first step toward achieving the long-term objective. The project aims to support the four countries mentioned in jointly elaborating and implementing a common institutional, legal, and technical framework for managing and preserving the Guarani Aquifer System for current and future generations. To achieve this, seven project components are envisaged: 1) expanding and consolidating the current scientific and technical knowledge base regarding the System; 2) jointly developing and implementing a Guarani Aquifer System Management Framework, based upoon an agreed Strategic Program of Action; 3) enhancing public and stakeholder participation, social communication, and environmental education; 4) evaluating and monitoring the project and disseminating project results; 5) developing regionally-appropriate groundwater management and mitigation measures in "hot spots"; 6) considering the potential to utilize the System's "clean" geothermal energy; and 7) coordinating and managing the project.
