The World Conference on
Preservation and Sustainable Development in the Pantanal (WCPSDP) is an
international project, sponsored by prominent academic, research and conservation
institutions and foundations, for the purposes of elucidating more clearly
the nature of the Pantanal, identifying threats to this system, advancing
initiatives towards its future, and fostering worldwide supporting mechanisms.
The WCPSDP conducts international conferences, symposia and fact-finding
tours, publishes original works on the Pantanal, serves as a catalyst toward
an integrated management involving Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay, and helps
in establishing networks among leading authorities of academic, governmental,
intergovernmental, and non-governmental organizations.
