The deadline for the environmental departments of both states is two weeks to have the project ready
Integrated actions between Mato Grosso do Sul and Mato Grosso were discussed yesterday between the secretary of environment of Mato Grosso, Mauren Lazzaretti and secretary Jaime Verruck, from Semadesc (Secretariat of Environment, Development, Science, Technology and Innovation). The idea is that within two weeks a Technical Cooperation Agreement will be defined for subsequent signature by the governors of each federation.
In Lazzaretti’s words, the focus of the actions is an integrated management plan between the two states to combat forestry, developing fauna monitoring actions and rescuing wild animals. “This already connects with our exchange that we will do with CRAS”, he stated, citing the Veterinary Hospital of the Wild Animal Rehabilitation Center, whose model will be an inspiration for the neighboring state.
The agreement also includes measures that cover the development of research in the Pantanal; joint actions for integrated fire management and combating forest fires both in prevention and action; integration of programs to encourage tourism and promote sustainable and organic livestock farming; and inclusive development of local communities such as settlers, indigenous people and quilombolas.
Verruck highlighted that “we understand that the Pantanal has this tourist appeal, but there is also a whole issue of a different production process and consequently the market in relation to the vocation for livestock farming”, highlighted the head of Semadesc”.
Visits – In the morning, accompanied by the director-president of Imasul, André Borges, the secretary from Mato Grosso visited the CRAS Veterinary Hospital. Then she visited the Pantanal Biopark.
In the afternoon, Maureen was received by Secretary Jaime Verruck at the State Government’s reception to discuss actions on the Pantanal Law.
“As a result of the meeting, we can first highlight the understanding of the two states aligned with the governors, to establish joint actions for the Pantanal Biome treaty. Today the states have their laws for the Pantanal. So there is legal coverage on both sides for this, but it also implies that we have to advance in understanding that it is a single biome and we need to think about integrated actions”, he highlighted.
