The Rio Doce Panel objectives are to:

• Provide independent expert scientific advice and guidance to the Renova Foundation: The ISTAP’s deliberations will be independent and free from real or perceived conflicts of interest and the Panel of experts will draw on existing international and national best practice and new knowledge.

• Provide a landscape-scale perspective: The ISTAP will challenge the Renova Foundation to develop and implement an integrated, outcomes-based strategy. It will encourage the development and implementation of innovative and long-term solutions to optimise resources and lead to the best possible social and conservation outcomes.

• Enhance stakeholder engagement in the restoration of the Rio Doce basin: Transparency and engagement will be central to the operation of the ISTAP. Information will be science-driven and evidence-based and the Panel’s reports and recommendations will be publically available. Engagement with interested and affected stakeholders will be integral to the STAP process.
