Centro de Competencias del Agua Workshop

Posted on

Over the last decade UWE Bristol, through the International Water Security Network, has partnered with Centro de Competencias del Agua in research focussing on the role of “nature-based solutions” (also called “green infrastructure”) in helping highland Peruvian communities adapt to climate change (see link to earlier collaborative activities here).  In recent years Peru has enacted laws for supporting “payment for ecosystems services” (PES) and sustainable development of indigenous communities.   From 4.00 to 6.00 pm (Peru time) on Wednesday June 15, 2022 the CCA team is hosting an on-line workshop to discuss the latest results from research focussing on indigenous knowledge and nature-based solutions for sustainable development.   There will be a particular focus on challenges facing Apurímac, Ayacucho and Huancavelica, three of the poorest districts with the highest indigenous populations in the Peruvian highlands and the role of indigenous knowledge and practice in aiding adaptation. The workshop will discuss research into indigenous processes of capturing and storing rainwater for its infiltration and refill of aquifers or other bodies of water, such as springs and slopes, referred to as “Sowing and harvesting water.” 

The event will be broadcasted via the Facebook page of the Andes Water Program at https://www.facebook.com/CentroDeCompetenciasDelAgua

¡Te esperamos!
