Andes Amazon Initiative

300 225 Stroud Water Research Center

The Andes Amazon Initiative was funded by the Moore Foundation to offer workshops in Peru and Costa Rica, to those in positions to make decisions about water resources and those whose students will become the stewards of the future.

We spent three weeks in August 2006 working in the headwaters of the Amazon in southeastern Peru. In October 2006 we returned to give a series of full-day workshops to:

  • Local public and private sector decision makers
  • Teachers
  • Conservation planners, non-governmental organization staff members, and university faculty
  • Eco-tourism guides.

In December 2006 we traveled to the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica to give a similar series of workshops.
