Cooperation with Brazil
SwAM has developed a cooperation based on mutual interest with partners in Brazil along two main lines: marine spatial planning (MSP) and biological diversity.
Marine spatial planning
We have an ongoing cooperation with Brazil’s Ministry of the Environment and the CIRM, (The Secretariat of Interministerial Commission of the Resources of the Sea), where we exchange knowledge and experiences regarding marine spatial planning.
SwAM has initiated a cooperation with Brazil on biological diversity issues and marine protected areas, with a specific focus on conservation and protection of small whales. The cooperation is both taking place on a technical level, through a project run by a Brazilian university, and on policy level, through a collaboration with the Ministry of Environment in Brazil.
Our cooperation partners in the project are:
- Brazil’s Ministry of Environment, Department of Conservation and Management of Species
- Instituto Chico Mendes de Conservação da Biodiversidade
- Kolmården, Wildlife Park
- Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences
- UNIVILLE and UFSC
- Yaqu Pacha
- Nürnbergs Zoo.
