Territorial Management
Font Size

Lack of knowledge on one's area of influence would hinder the solution or effective indication of alternatives to correct environmental liabilities.

In Itaipu's case, the consequences of environmental liabilities in the company's area of influence (the Paraná Watershed 3) reflect directly upon the basic input of its business, which is the water stored in its reservoir.

Hence, the Territorial Management Program seeks to sort out all the existing information and that which is constantly being acquired by the Cultivating Good Water program to generate a concise databank on the BP3.

Therefore, the program implements territorial information investigation and management policies by handling social, economic, environmental and geographical data through chart making and geoprocessing techniques in an effort to generate better results for environmental management.

Quality

The democratic and quality access to territorial and environmental information by the several players in projects supporting the Cultivating Good Water program is a vital factor to help them make decisions about territorial management and indicate solutions to correct environmental liabilities in the BP3.

That is why Itaipu has strengthened its IT units both on the right bank (Paraguay) and on the left bank (Brazil). They now undergo continuous structuring and enhancement via the admission of qualified, trained personnel, combined with the periodic updating of BP3 geographic data.

This work methodology benefits all the programs and projects conducted by the Coordination and Environmental Executive Office, besides the other Itaipu departments and local cities that require quality territorial and environmental information.

In addition to implementing and structuring the Geoprocessing and Cartography Units, the program has enabled the development of seven applications that store and share territorial and environmental information.
