  • Description:
    "The main aims of the project 'Sustainable Community Management for the Rio Salado Basin' were to reduce environmentally harmful contaminants, conserve the basin of the Rio Salado and its principle tributaries, and increase the participation of local inhabitants, small agricultural producers and cattle farmers of the communities within the Cuero y Salado Wildlife Refuge. These ends were approached by means of environmental education programs, the formation of community facilitators, and the establishment of environmentally friendly management alternatives for an upstream African palm fruit processing plant that uses the basin to discharge highly oxidized effluents. The NGO project administrator FUCSA strengthened its relations within the community, with organizations for the conservation of the civil society, and with regional organs of the municipal and central government. Finally, FUCSA evaluated both the concentration levels of water contaminants and the various social aspects of the key players in the region. FUCSA prepared an initial work plan for 18 months but for diverse reasons requested an extension of 10 months to conclude pending activities and proposals whose purposes were oriented to the conservation of the drainage basin of the refuge. During the implementation period of the project FUCSA used its buildings, equipment, and administrative and technical personnel to support all activities, prepare reports, and manage the resources contributed by NOAA. It also kept detailed and accurate financial reports"--Introduction.
