|Samenvatting||Civil society is achieving an ever-greater role in managing one of South America’s largest river basins, which includes the world-famous Pantanal. External financial support has helped hundreds of NGOs and community based organizations secure a commitment from the environmental authorities of five countries to develop a joint programme for the sustainable management of the entire complex. Since 2001, IUCN NL has funded several capacity-building and advocacy projects initiated by Rios Vivos members and other NGOs in the basin. These projects played a crucial role in the development of an alternative development proposal for the entire river basin that consists of an environmentally sound and pro-poor alternative to conventional development schemes. This report provides a short overview of these activities and their impact.|
