The "Reconecta AMC" (Campinas Metropolitan Area) plan is an urban planning tool through which green corridors are being designed to connect green areas in the urban space. Also, through the green corridors, the spaces along the riverbanks are being protected, preventing illegal constructions and protecting water quality. The plan has been ratified by 20 of the municipalities that make up the metropolitan area and identifies sites to be restored, generally on the banks of watercourses.
