Campo Grande - The Symposium on Public Use in Parks in Mato Grosso do Sul, an event that focuses on the promotion of good practice in Parks and other protected areas, has begun, contributing to the sustainable development of these regions. The activities will be held from 12 to 13 November at the Rubens Gil de Camilo Convention Center. The organization is from WWF-Brazil in conjunction with Semagro (State Secretariat of Environment, Economic Development, Production and Family Farming) and support from Imasul (Mato Grosso do Sul Environmental Institute) and Semeia Institute. It is funded by the European Union by the PASOS Project.

The event started promisingly. The state government of Mato Grosso has already signed the rules that create the State Program for public use of parks and has also signed a cooperation agreement with WWF-Brazil.

The Symposium will feature participants from Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia, countries where the Pantanal extends. An audience of 300 people is expected. Cases of parks concession, tourism in protected areas in Brazil (ICMBio) and in neighboring countries, tourism in private areas, as well as lecture about Conservation Units and protected areas of Mato Grosso do Sul will be exposed.

The event also marks the launch of the RPPN Business Plan Guide, Volume 5 of Ciência Pantanal magazine and the series of animations about the Pantanal Biosphere Reserve.

Pantanal Day

The Public Use Symposium in Parks in Mato Grosso do Sul is one of the activities proposed by WWF-Brazil for the celebration of Pantanal Day, a biome that covers the Brazilian, Bolivian and Paraguayan territory and plays an important role in the conservation of biodiversity, as a source of water, climate stabilization and soil conservation. Also called the “kingdom of waters”, the Pantanal holds one of the largest continental wetlands on the planet, 624,320 km².
