Consolidating the Brazilian National System of Conservation Units (SNUC) - LifeWeb

As of: July 2019

Objective and activities

The project supports the establishment of an efficient and sustainable management system for the Brazilian National System of Conservation Units (SNUC) and the associated protected areas. The aim is to improve the efficiency of the organisation and administrative procedures within the administrative authorities managing protected areas. GIZ is drawing up management and protection plans for the affected areas and supplying the necessary equipment and materials for selected protected areas. As part of the project, administrative staff are trained in using the instruments for estimating costs (investments, running costs) to manage protected areas and receive assistance in producing fund-raising materials. The project also supports long-term nationwide information and awareness-raising campaigns for nature conservation via mass media, which contribute to a positive appreciation for the protected areas and their importance in providing ecosystem services.
