Brasília, Brazil: Stakeholders Come Together for Ecosystem RegenerationCircle City Scan Tool Case Study
Brazil’s populous capital city, Brasília, is no stranger to drought and water scarcity. Protecting the ecosystems that help local water bodies recharge is key to maintaining the city’s water supply going forward. One such ecosystem is in the Serrinha do Paranoá, a threatened watershed to the north of the city. This case study documents how stakeholders worked together to support ecosystem regeneration by mapping water features and establishing conservation areas under the umbrella of the Serrinha do Paranoá Waters Project.
This case study was developed as part of the Circle City Scan Tool pilot. Learn more about the project.
