Our Approach To Natural Infrastructure
We restore local ecosystems to help communities grow stronger, more resilient and more sustainable. For instance, wetlands and marshes help improve water quality and mitigate natural disasters. Our goal is for communities to grow strong, more resilient to shocks and stresses, and have the local infrastructure that equips them to thrive.
The Cantareira system provides fresh water to more than one-third of Sao Paulo’s metropolitan area. Once nearly dried out, it has come back thanks to watershed management and natural infrastructure techniques.
