Exploring Guanabara Bay in route to a report card
IAN staff headed back to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for another stop in their journey to create the first Guanabara Bay Report Card. This visit included a workshop in Niteroi, a city across Guanabara Bay from Rio de Janeiro as well as a boat tour of the bay. The workshop included discussions reviewing values of and threats to the ecosystem, adding new indicators to the report, and presenting survey results from the previous workshop. Clear communication on the restoration of Guanabara Bay was identified as a key effort in stakeholder engagement, especially during the report card process. The boat tour showcased both the good and bad of Guanabara Bay, including fishing and pollution.
