Integrated Environmental Assessment of Agricultural and Farming Production Systems in the Toledo River Basin (Brazil)

Integrated Environmental Assessment of Agricultural and Farming Production Systems in the Toledo River Basin (Brazil)
  • UNESCO-International Hydrological Programme (IHP). January 2013
  • This study aims at performing an integrated environmental assessment of agricultural and farming production systems located in the Toledo River Basin (Paraná State, Brazil). Water, material, energy, and money resources invested in supporting such production systems were evaluated with the final goal of calculating a large set of multi-criteria indicators useful to describe the environmental performance and sustainability of the production systems at farm and basin level. Finally, three alternative scenarios are drawn to explore the sustainable use of resources according to different land uses, production levels, and management practices, paying special attention to water use.
