Enterprise in Peru!
Author: Camilo Arias
Enterpriser Camilo Arias (firstname.lastname@example.org) recently collaborated with colleagues from the Amazonian states of San Martin and Ucayali environmental agencies in Peru on designing and conducting a watershed condition assessment workshop. These states have recently enacted legislation in an effort to use a watershed approach in the decision-making process. Watersheds are well-defined areas appropriate as organizational units, where natural resources and the socio-economical systems interrelate. The workshop gathered a group of stakeholders within two pilot watersheds, and together defined guidelines and indicators to assess the existing condition of watersheds. This work in progress aims at establishing a regional methodology for rapid assessments of Amazonian watersheds, which would then provide a reference for decision makers to work along stakeholders on management strategies to develop the region’s economy while protecting the natural resources.
