Saving Fresh Water Sources in Brazil's Cerrado Region

More than 180,000 of Brazil's 2.6 million residents depend on the Pipiripau River for water, but human and environmental factors have depleted its supply. The Great Rivers Partnership—an initiative created by the Caterpillar Foundation and The Nature Conservancy—aims to protect its fresh water supply with an innovative program known as the Water Producer Program. The project financially compensates rural landowners who help improve water quality and quantity by preserving and restoring grasslands and forests along the river and its streams.
