Reducing and Preventing Land-based Pollution in the Rio de la Plata/Maritime Front through Implementation of the FrePlata Strategic Action Programme
|Project Category:||Large Marine Ecosystem|
This project aims to facilitate the implementation of land-based pollution-reducing and preventive actions included in the FREPLATA SAP. Although the major domestic, municipal and industrial point sources along the Rio de la Plata itself can be controlled by each country individually through implementation of the NAPs, the bilateral and cross sectoral dimensions of the pollution problem, including those originating in the upstream river basin, need a sustainable coordinated bilateral effort.
This project will:
The project by itself will not significantly reduce pollution levels, but will strengthen bilateral ties between both countries , establishing the basis for the sustainability of a post-project effort to prevent and reduce pollution, with long-term measures to preserve and protect de Rio de la Plata and its Maritime Front. The Member States are committed to continue the program of FREPLATA beyond the GEF intervention and will seek the adoption of legal reforms and the instrumentation of economic measures that are required for its continuous strengthening.”
