WWF has been working in Pantanal since 1998. An integrated vision of conservation in one of the most important regions of South America is the focus of this shared strategy among Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay, aiming at the conservation of the Cerrado and the Pantanal, working to reduce the impact of majors threats to these biomes.

This trinational conservation initiative is based on the protection and conservation of aquatic ecosystems, especially of the region’s main headwaters; on the development and dissemination of sustainable chains of production, which embraces environmental assets in their development; and on territorial planning, for the adoption  of environmental criteria in economic development and infrastructure deployment in the region. It also supports the management of protected areas, as well as their gradual increase and awareness of consumer choices and environmental impact they can cause. The strategy also seeks to ensure the conservation of the Cerrado and the Pantanal in an integrated and shared way among the three countries, their governments and their inhabitants or civil society, whose livelihoods depend upon this region.
