Associative Plan for Combating Forest Fires and Fires in the Guandu, Guarda and Guandu-Mirim Rivers Hydrographic Basin
The Associative Plan for Combating Queimadas emerged as one of the initiatives of the Guandu-RJ Committee based on the recommendations of the Strategic Plan for Water Resources for the Guandu, Guarda and Guandu-Mirim Rivers Hydrographic Basin (PERH Guandu). This document points out, among other recommendations, the need to preserve existing forest remnants in Hydrographic Region II (RH II) in order to guarantee the quality and availability of water to supply the Metropolitan Region of Rio de Janeiro.
The Final Report is the result of work started in July 2012 and completed in February 2014, involving the survey of data on the institutional capacity of the entities involved in preventing and combating forest fires and fires; and the carrying out of an environmental analysis of RH II, identifying the critical and priority areas for prevention and combat actions, which culminated in the elaboration of the Associative Plan. The importance of the participation of various institutions that work in the areas of communication and education, prevention and combat, research and monitoring of burning and forest fires in the discussions of the diagnosis and in the validation of the proposals for the Plan is highlighted. The process included mobilization meetings and workshops.
