text is about hydrographic surveys on the Hidrovia of the XXXXXX River
Carol
English translation:the Hydrovia OR waterway
Explanation:
Without reading the original Japanese, I'lll suggest 2 possiblities. One is the Hydrovia....

"The Pantanal is the world's largest wetland, and its abundant wildlife relies on the seasonal flooding of the Paraguay river. Voices of the Pantanal weaves a concert of testimonies from the "Pantaneiros" who share concerns about their future and its present challenge, the Hydrovia. This waterway project is the result of a political alliance between Brazil, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay and Argentina to enable large scale navigation in the Paraguay-Parana river system. The project has alarmed the scientific and environmental communities as any impact on the natural state of the Paraguay river could affect the Pantanal ecosystem in an irreversible way."

Another unlikely possibility is a mix of (hydro) and (via)- water and road - for waterway in the general sense.
