Priority Corridors: All in the hotspot
County: All in the hotspot
General objective: Through a strong work of communication, face-to-face, social, communication and environmental networking, the organizations and focal points of all states and municipalities of the states that make up the Cerrado will be contacted by scheduling meetings and seminars to be held in the main municipalities with strong tourism potential, sustainable ecotourism and / or high deforestation rates in the last 10 years. CEPF's KBAs and Priority Corridors will also be one of the main criteria in choosing areas to be recognized as RPPNs, but efforts will be made in the Cerrado as a whole, given the difficulty of convincing owners to create RPPNs. This will encourage the creation of private protected areas (RPPN) by implementing 4 strategies.
- Produce a list of owners interested in creating RPPNs.
- Create a communication plan and strategy.
- Prepare a roadmap for meetings/seminars in regions and municipalities of major environmental relevance and/or that have shown interest in participating in the project.
- Implement the processes for creating RPPNs.
