SUPPORTING PROJECTS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPROVEMENT IN PARAGUAY
OCA Global was selected at the end of last year by the European Commission to carry out the implementation of the project "Environmental Feasibility Study EUD Paraguay", in order to provide Technical Assistance to the EU Delegation in Asunción (Paraguay) in identification of strategic areas of support in the environmental protection sector and the fight against climate change in the country.
The main sectors prioritized by our team for this analysis have been:
- Agriculture: including agriculture and livestock, agricultural industries, sustainable food value chains, and circular economy
- Water and water resources
- Forestry and land use change, biodiversity and conservation
The workshops have been organized in a hybrid way, with actors who have attended both in person and virtually (in order to guarantee the presence of the largest possible number of actors and at the same time guarantee the safety of all participants against Covid-19) .
Some of the institutions with a presence in the workshops have been: the Ministry of the Environment and Sustainable Development, the National Forest Institute, the Paraguayan Industrial Union, the National Council of Science and Technology, the Paraguayan Institute of Agrarian Technology, the Rural Association of Paraguay , the Paraguayan Institute of Agrarian Technology, the Paraguayan Organization for Intermunicipal Cooperation, the National Institute for Rural and Land Development, the Federation for the Self-Determination of Indigenous Peoples of Paraguay, and the Network of Environmental and Development NGOs, among many other
