Restoring Brasília's watershed

Brazil's capital city, Brasília, is no stranger to drought. After years of low rainfall, the situation reached crisis levels in 2016. To ensure that local water bodies remain able to naturally recharge, a diverse group of stakeholders collaborated to reforest springs in the northern urban watershed. These springs flow into lake Paranoá, an important water source for the city.
