OPEN CLASS: MANAGEMENT OF WATER RESOURCES IN IBERO-AMERICA. THE CASES OF BRAZIL, COLOMBIA AND PERU | 15 JUNE | 13.30 AND 18.30 | ONLINE

 15 Jun 2021 - 13:30

Although Brazil has the largest freshwater reserve in the world, it still faces situations of water stress, especially in metropolitan regions, requiring an efficient system for managing its water resources. Thus, analyzing the Strategic Planning (SP) of a Hydrographic Basin Committee (CBH) and its actions, from the perspective of the dimensions of sustainability - economic, social and environmental - can be useful for proposing a Management System of Knowledge (SGC), so that other basin plans existing in Brazil and abroad can make use of the proposed SGC to assist the decision-making process in the management of water resources. Currently, studies on environmental dynamics focus mainly on the investigation of one or two environmental dimensions. For example, the study of the environmental, sociocultural or ecosystem problems of a productive activity, rather than the entire environment, its relationships and interactions. Therefore, this partial view does not allow us to observe all the environmental aspects of a productive activity, its implications, which are responsible for environmental deterioration, and recovery possibilities. Consequently, the opportunity to present comprehensive approaches to the study of water, which analyze all the environmental dimensions involved in a productive activity, their relationships and interactions, both internal and external. The comprehensive approaches selected for the study of water are: Ecosystem – Culture used in Colombia and the Nexus Water, Energy and Food Security implemented in Peru.
