The purpose of this line of action by the Carapa Ypoti sub-program is to recover, protect, and conserve the area surrounding the reservoir to ensure its sustainability via farming that truly matches its multi-purpose character.

The human profile is the most important point for the establishment of strategies. The three central, structural goals of the integrated micro-management plan are: country roads, water-bordering and legal reserve woods, and organizational aspects.

In order to enable multi-purpose farming along the polygonal line limiting the Itaipu protected areas, the company has set up strategies with different deadlines and projections. Farmers are paid by their crops yield and for environmental practices that benefit the entire community.

Regarding the projections, the project includes an innovative process to evaluate farms, as well as the possible scores to be reached according to the various environmental practices.
